No sooner have one class of Conservation Stars graduated from the ALERT Education Centre (AEC), than another group of children have eagerly take their place in Africa’s liveliest classroom.
A new class of 33 students from Mkoba 4 Primary School began lessons earlier this week. Despite the school holidays having already started, the children are keen to spend their time off learning about conservation. They particularly enjoyed a visit from an Antelope Park attachment student. Gladys, who is studying Tourism and Hospitality including aspects of being a Field Guide, shared with the class what inspired her to follow her passion for conservation, tourism and wildlife, as well as reinforcing the important role they can play in looking after their environment.
