Quote from the article
At the schools, the presentations focused on the identification of wild animals and their importance. A combination of presentations, games, films and discussion kept the children interested. They were all very enthusiastic and some teachers looked likely to give further attention to environmental subjects in the future.

At the end of the sessions IARís team was confident that the villagers learned a great deal from the workshops and will look at the natural world around them with new eyes in future. It is hoped that hunting with snares will no longer be practised, so that Aceng and the other animals in the forest can live safely and without the risk of being caught and wounded in the future.

It would be very interesting to know how many other schools in the world teaches children respect for wildlife. Great idea - get them involved - and who knows how many sparks have been lit in tiny young hearts - conservationists in the making!
