Delve into the heart of one of Africa’s most serious and complex environmental issues – wildlife and human conflict!

An African experience encourages students to walk in someone else’s shoes for a day to gain an insight into the harsh realities of surviving alongside wildlife in Africa.  Students are presented with an international environmental and cultural challenge that will have them caught up in a lively discussion about the role all of us as consumers have to play in the loss of wildlife on a global scale. Using their newfound awareness students determine how they can take actual conservation action for African wildlife and their habitats.
