Last week, our school outreach program began again! This year, our education team travels to 10 schools each week, and over 1,000 students are participating. Lessons for the schools focus on primates, the environment, sustainable development, and man’s impact on nature.
Last week, students took a pre-exam
During the first week of school outreach, students are given a pre-exam that tests their current conservation and environmental knowledge. At the end of the school year, students are given a post-exam, allowing us to see any improvements that have been made and also allowing us to determine any changes that need to be made to our school outreach curriculum.
The students are very enthusiastic about conservation!
Our Saturday Nature Club also began last weekend. Over 200 local children participate every year, and activities include tours around the sanctuary, dramatic performances, field trips, and rallies.
We are looking forward to another exciting year of school outreach, guided tours, and the Nature Club! Conservation education is an extremely important aspect of Limbe Wildlife Centre, and we thank Columbus Zoo, Los Angeles Zoo, and Givskud Zoo for their continued support of our programs.
