Inspiring Cambodia's next generation of environmentalists
By Jess Knierim - Director of Development and Communications
The Kouprey Express, Wildlife Alliance's environmental education team, were busy last month inspiring Cambodia's next generation of environmentalists! A total of 223 teachers and students from Phnom Penh and Prey Veng province visited our Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center where they met animals that were rescued from the illegal wildlife trade, learned more about the hard work of our keepers, and gained a deeper appreciation for Cambodia's natural heritage. The team also raised awareness on wildlife and habitat protection through lessons to 180 students from Kampong Speu and Prey Veng provinces. Cambodia has a very young population (60% of people are under 30) so by establishing a culture of an appreciation for nature in the country's youth, we hope to effect long term change in conservation. We're proud to be working with Educational Life International Cambodia (Ltd), Hope Village, Development for Community Center, and Destiny Rescue Center Cambodia (DRCC) on these initiatives.
