Underprivileged children in South Africa do not experience wildlife and the natural environment which can lead to high levels of illegal poaching. This project will fund an outreach program to assist and facilitate establishing Eco-clubs at local schools and provide guidance for running environmental activities and educational programs in these eco-clubs.
Limpopo Province is rich in natural resources and cultural heritage, yet it is known to be the poorest and least educated area of South Africa, with an associated very high level of wildlife poaching. A lack of environmental education at all levels is a key cause of this. Local poor communities see easy access to meat, ivory and firewood just on the other side of a fence. They live near the Kruger National Park and various private nature reserves but never get the chance to visit them.
