Schools and Education Program


Overall, the course aims to create Wildlife Ambassadors and strengthen co-existence between the community, wildlife and the landscape in which they exist.

The objectives of the curriculum are to produce student graduates who:

  • Are knowledgable about the importance of taking care of our natural world
  • Appreciate their environment
  • Are well-informed and able to identify different species’ roles in achieving a balanced ecosystem
  • Can reinforce beehive fence use and other techniques to deter elephants from raiding crops.

An environmental class in progress

Three themes are taught over the course of a school year. The first is The role of animals in the savannah ecosystem. This focuses on their importance and interrelationships. Additionally, it builds an understanding of elephant behaviour and adaptations to their environments.

Students filling in questionnaires during a field trip

Each year, the project sponsors two field trips to complement lessons learned in the classroom. Additionally, we formed a Wildlife Club and screen environmental films every Friday – a highlight for many students!

Students who are environmentally conscious can establish healthy ecosystems and sustainable communities.
