Ambassador programme for learners
In South Africa, IFAW is already doing that via their “Ambassadors for Animals Programme” in partnership with E-Classroom. Our 14 fabulous ambassadors from schools around the country have received their first assignments and are getting ready to rock their fellow learners with fun facts and activities to engage youth in conservation, environment and animal welfare issues.
Friday, March 3rd is World Wildlife Day. All over the world millions of people will be doing things that celebrate wildlife. Given that almost one quarter of the world’s population is aged between 10 and 24, vigorous efforts are being made to encourage young people, as future leaders and decision makers, to act to protect endangered wildlife. That’s why WWD 2017 is being celebrated under the theme “Listen to the Young Voices.”
Lookout for ongoing reports and pictures of their progress and find IFAW’s curriculum linked worksheets on elephants and biodiversity on E-Classroom.
The hunt for our 2018 Ambassadors is just a few months away, and the worksheets could help you become one of IFAW’s coveted Ambassadors for Animals.
