Our education programme has been delivering talks and workshops to as many as 9000 children a year since 2004.
We have a wealth of experience in teaching children and young people aged 6-19 about endangered animals and conservation. We are supported by our overseas conservation partners that have specific, local knowledge of long-term conservation projects and their impact in Africa and Asia. Our content introduces children to the complex and creative solutions needed to save endangered species. Children and young people will learn about the habitats and behaviour of our core species and the lived experience of the local community that live with wild animals every day.
Within this section you will find our core offer to schools, clubs and libraries that includes:
Although our core aim is to deliver coherent conservation and wildlife messages, we do link to the requirements from awarding bodies and national curricula where they naturally arise.
This is our flagship offer and goes from strength to strength. We deliver sessions to all types of schools, after-school clubs, supplementary schools, Scouts, Guides and other youth groups If you don’t see quite what you are looking for, please get in touch. We can tailor our offer to your specific needs.
Produced by a team of teachers from East Sussex, with the support of our overseas conservation partners, the resources explore what biodiversity means, why we need to maintain biodiversity and specific, practical ways that this is done in Africa and Asia. They will support the teaching of GCSE science, GCSE biology, the Next Generation Science Standards in the USA and Scottish N5.
Currently in development, students will be able to access real conservation datasets, produce their own hypotheses and complete real scientific research.
