We engage with 128 primary schools in five districts, involving over 60,000 students and 500 teachers. We also engage with 37 communities (defined by wards). The education program around Savé Valley Conservancy has been in place since 2011, and since early 2015 around Gonarezhou National Park (carried out by the Chilojo Club).
When the program started it simply included conservation awareness lessons and the showing of relevant wildlife movies/media to students. Since then the program has expanded significantly, and today involves a host of activities geared to enable children and local communities to enjoy and experience wildlife first hand, understand the many opportunities linked to protected areas, and to develop an appreciation for wildlife and an understanding of the importance of conservation.
