School Outreach Program
Fostering awareness and education is a large part of CCF’s mandate. It begins at the grassroots level. Enhancing education experiences for school age children means that conservation awareness increasingly becomes part of the fabric of Namibian society.
These programs play a vital role in encouraging young people to pursue higher level education and to gain a better understanding of the importance of protecting biodiversity and its importance to their country’s economy and social welfare.
The educational program highlights Namibian predator identification, ecological and physiological characteristics of the cheetah, and problems associated with human/cheetah conflict. Every year, approximately 20,000 school children in grades 5-7 visit CCF’s International Research and Education Centre to participate in this program.
With the donations received from Canada, CCF Namibia is able to teach a greater number of children about the importance of conservation, and ways in which to achieve a good balance between people and their environment.
