CONSERVATION & NATURE

WILDLIFE EDUCATION & CONSERVATION AWARENESS LEARNING HUB

The African Edu-Eco Wizard team of professionals have devised a number of exciting and innovative Wildlife Education, Conservation Awareness and Research Oriented Awareness Learning programs which not only focuses on formal training but also caters for individuals with enquiring minds and an innate desire to learn more about African Conservation and the management thereof. We focus on aspects such as Game Farm and Wildlife Management, formal and informal behavioral Research initiatives, and experiential bush-wise knowledge skills development aligned with practically applicable skills acquisition through monitoring, data collection, assimilation of data and record-keeping.

Our primary focus is on experiential conservation adventures, wildlife and conservation awareness education supported by tangible practically applicable skills development. On any one of our specifically designed programs, notebooks, participant interest and pens are as vital as safety, responsibility and life skills development through wilderness and wildlife conservation awareness. Every experience includes our core curriculum where the skills and knowledge essential to perpetuate a wilderness, conservation and sound adventure ethic are taught and encouraged in a participative, fun learning environment. Participants are taught to be professional, ethical, responsible and safe users of the environment. Our sustainable education and teaching philosophy is mirrored in the Chinese proverb; “What I hear I forget; What I see, I remember; What I do I know”. Wildlife education is our primary objective and we believe that the best wildlife, conservation and adventure learning comes through an experiential ‘hands-on’ approach to learning and ‘first-hand’ outcome-based adventure experiences.

We use Observation, Interpretation, Deduction, Collection, Research, Feedback, Presentation and Peer-review as Outcome-based learning objectives. Each program has a number of fun, participative and informative activity sessions where participants provide group feedback and prepare and present High-Value Interest specific presentations. Our programs are designed to facilitate tangible and measurable outcome-based learning with applicable skills being absorbed which can be applied in ones daily life and possible career opportunities. As you become more and more immersed in the programs so your knowledge grows and expands as does your confidence.

All programs are presented along the Garden Route between Mossel Bay and Tsitsikamma. Our training bases are centrally located in Plettenberg Bay. Our programs have a 1:10 facilitator to participant ratio. Our instructors are very highly qualified, educators and teachers who love sharing and teaching what they know.
