Conservation Education and Outreach
Our project is taking several different approaches to education and outreach in communities living within and around forest areas. In collaboration with the Ecosys Action Foundation, we are establishing conservation education programs in primary schools (Ages 4 – 12) within communities where we work. In the first instance, the project aims to provide relevant educational materials such as comic books illustrating conservation issues of critical wildlife species and giving out stuffed toys of wildlife occurring in the forests where they live as souvenirs. For secondary schools (Ages 13 – 20), through a trained local teacher, monthly classes will be organized in each school using posters and a curriculum designed by the project. We also aim to establish conservation ambassador clubs where field trips, award competitions and shows can be organized and promoted. We are also conducting policy-relevant advocacy which will serve the dual purpose of informing these policy-makers about the current conservation issues and the existing laws enabling them making rooms for proposals to review laws/formulate new laws that will be  more relevant and effective.
