Education and Outreach
Children can learn about wildlife from their immediate environment by something as simple as growing plants and observing insects. Our Wildlife Warriors program is a powerful network of schools across the country that brings wildlife into classroom through books and films, and takes children into the parks to be awed and inspired by our wondrous wildlife. We engage schools in meaningful activities like citizen science, photography, habitat protection and ecosystem restoration. Our model is to provide training and materials to teachers so that they can empower children to make a difference in their own communities, addressing conservation and human-wildlife conflict.
WildlifeDirect is the only African conservation organization that is developing wildlife documentaries for local audiences. Our educational wildlife documentary series Wildlife Warriors reached 4 million viewers per week in Kenya during broadcast. Each episode features a Kenyan conservation hero and the species they are conserving. We also expanded to the rest of the continent as the series is now being broadcast in 26 countries reaching over 70 million Africans via Nigerian channel EbonyLife TV. The show shines a light on Africa’s own conservation heroes who are fighting grave battles, breaking new ground and risking everything to preserve what they hold most dear, the land of their ancestors and the animals they have lived closely with for generations.
