After a recent trip to the Chi Phat Primary School by the Kouprey Express, the team received 13 ‘love’ letters from students. So enthralled by their experience, the kids felt compelled to express their gratitude to the team for helping them learn about animal welfare and the environment. As the bus drove out of town, several of the kids ran behind the bus waving and cheering. It is immensely gratifying to the team in specific and the whole of Wildlife Alliance to know that we are making a positive impact in the lives of these children while teaching them to preserve Cambodia’s natural heritage. The Kouprey Express team visits approximately 2 schools each month, up to 20 per year delivering lessons to students and teachers in conservation education. Increased understanding through interactive education and hands-on activities is the critical building block through which Wildlife Alliance hopes to sustain Cambodia’s proactive conservation of its threatened wildlife and by which we are influencing positive behaviors, attitudes, and actions toward wildlife and their habitat. Translations of the Letters: Letter1 - Teacher I really don’t want you to leave because I love and miss you very much when i learned with you it made me very happy and feel very comfortable. From me, the person who love and miss you very much. Han Thorn, Grade 4; Letter 2 - Teacher I really don’t want to get away from you because and love and miss you very much, we want you to teach us again. From me, Tong Yi, Grade 4
