Environmental Education Week

Using interactive games to get kids interested!
Using interactive games to get kids interested!

Last month, we celebrated Environmental Education Week from April 19-25. Every year, in conjunction with Earth Day, Environmental Education Week aims to inspire environmental learning and stewardship in younger audiences. Environmental education is often most lacking in underserved communities where there is already poor educational infrastructure. This is especially true in a poverty stricken nation like Cambodia where only 40% of children enroll in secondary school and a lack of resources and funding has resulted in a shortage of teaching material and training. Wildlife Alliance’s Mobile Environmental Education Unit, the Kouprey Express (KE) strives to fill that gap. This mobile team travels around Cambodia providing engaging, interactive environmental education and material to students, teachers and communities.

So far this year, 60 teachers and community members received teacher training lessons, 613 students learned about conservation, wildlife protection and deforestation through classroom lessons, 428 students, community members, and teachers went on a field trip to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center (PTWRC) to meet rescued animals, and 6,120 individuals attended outreach events and Community Night Shows where they received KE’s conservation message. Since 2004, the Kouprey Express has provided environmental and wildlife education to over 46,000 children and teachers and over 110,000 community members. This dedicated team not only works to inspire forest and wildlife protection, but also teaches communities about hygiene, waste management, pollution and other detrimental issues facing developing nations.

Thank you for your support, and for helping the Kouprey Express educate and inspire wildlife conservation in Cambodia!
