Our education sessions take place in nature. They include guided forest walks, drama, story-telling, games and hands-on conservation work. Our lessons cover nine modules – linked to the Sustainable Development Goals – which cover the following issues: biodiversity, wildlife crime, wildlife conservation and welfare, waste management, forests and deforestation, human-wildlife conflict, climate change, water management and conservation agriculture. Including practical, action-based learning, our programme is designed to equip the next generation with the knowledge and skills to make a real difference to environmental protection.
