This programme focuses on educating local school children about conservation, the environment and wildlife in Cameroon. Every week during the academic year we go to schools in and around Limbe to teach lessons on topics such as primates, ecology, and the impact of human activities on the environment. We use a hands-on and creative approach and include student visits to the sanctuary, theatrical performances, singing and field trips in our programme. Ultimately, we aim to educate and inspire the next generation to protect wildlife.
As of 2022, our educators teach in 14 schools in Limbe, Batoke and Bakingili, reaching up to 2,100 school children. Furthermore, many of the students attend our Saturday Nature Club. Our outreach programme also involves a comprehensive evaluation element in order to assess the impact of our programmes. Our hope is to one day ensure all children in Cameroon receive specific education on conservation.
