  • Helping students and community members identify ways they can join wildlife clubs or even establish their own, either at school or home.
  • Helping students discover new ways to look at wildlife other than the local traditional ways (i.e. source of meat, crop destroyers, local medicine, source of income through poaching, trade, etc.)
  • Training educators to implement conservation programs in schools and communities.
  • Developing and implementing several wildlife clubs within the geographic region.
  • Putting together several traveling suitcases full of educational wildlife props and supplies that are shared among participating schools and communities.
