Through the story of the leopard and predators children of all ages are taught about the necessity for biodiversity and habitat conservation, the ethical treatment of wildlife and ultimately how to live sustainably with nature. We visit schools from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth and deep into the Karoo. Our presentation is interactive and fun while still covering serious topics like the threats to biodiversity and how our day to day lives influence the earth.
We give special attention to making the children feel they can help and give them practical ways to do this, from spending time in nature, to food gardens at schools, waste management and even undertaking research themselves. From Gr 0 to 12 the education portfolio is adapted to the age and background of the learners.
From Aug 2009 to June 2015 the program has:
- Reached over 10000 students
- Visited 78 schools (many of which are rural schools)
- Annual visits with 3 tertiary institutions
We also run special programs:
- Camps and Hikes
- Students Leopard Project Research
- Art for Conservation Competition & Creativity Workshops
- “Poppekas” (puppet play)
- Race for Leopards
