EDUCATION & AWARENESS
All of the
threats to this species are, either directly or
indirectly, caused by humans. This means that changing
perceptions and creating awareness of the plight of this
species is the first step in their conservation. There
are several common misperceptions including that because
many birds are seen in the Kruger National Park that the
population is still healthy in South Africa. The
education programme consists of four targeted campaigns
Educators: Age 3 – 5
Explorers: Age 5 – 7
Experimenters: Age 7 – 11
Conservationists: Age 12 – 18
These include complete teaching guidelines and all the activities. These can be used as a complete package or mixed-and –matched to suite the learners needs. There is also an A4 pamphlet with activities that are a fun introduction to the birds and some of the their interesting facts.
