Wildlife education is at
the core of DSWF

Our aim is to develop strong advocates for endangered animals and their habitats- whether young people end up working  in conservation or not.

Children need to acquire the necessary vocabulary and develop an understanding of biodiversity, the complexities of conserving habitats, endangered animals, and the local communities around them.

This section includes resources that children and young people can use to inform themselves about the animals we support, their behaviour and physical characteristics. Teachers, parents, and guardians can make use of our species fact sheets word searches and colouring pages for independent projects under each animal species.

Find out more about the species DSWF protects from the animal factsheets below:

If that has peaked your interest and you would like to find out even more about a certain species, including the threats they are facing and what DSWF is doing to save them, please select animal below for more information.

If you want to be part of the solution, why not adopt your favourite species
