Bush School and Wildlife - South Africa
The Bush School & Wildlife centre opened in 2006 with the mission of educating and inspiring local children to value their environment and stimulate community development.
The project runs weekly and hosts up to 8 youth from local communities at the farm. During the week, they build their knowledge of the environment and native wildlife while attending lessons, taking part in activities, and caring for the animals at the wildlife orphanage. This can be anything from; feeding an animal with a bottle, to cleaning their enclosures or picking up a hammer and renovating their homes. Over four thousand local youth have participated in the program, and the project is always looking to adapt and develop the program to reach more people.
