The ALERT Education Centre (AEC) has celebrated another graduation day; this time for 39 Grade 6 children from Mkoba 4 Primary School.
Before the graduation ceremony, the students consolidated their knowledge of conservation, gained over the previous five weeks, with a game drive through Antelope Park. Using their new-found skills, they were able to identify impalas, wildebeest and zebra. After a tour of the lion Breeding Program, the proud graduates were presented with a Certificate of Completion and their ‘I'm a Conservation Star’ t-shirts, which they proudly put on straightaway.
Congratulations to the newest Conservation Stars!
Since the Conservation Education curriculum was launched earlier this year, the AEC has taught 140 children about the importance of conservation. By encouraging this generation to be more aware of their environment, it is hoped that they will take an active role in its protection and restoration for the benefit of both future generations and African wildlife.
To allow the AEC to continue to provide free Conservation Education classes to more students in the long-term, ALERT urgently needs funding. Please show your support of our work by making a donation here and state that it is to be used for the ALERT Education Centre.
