Conservation is an important component of the South African school curriculum. Learners are encouraged to develop their knowledge of our natural heritage and investigate ways of protecting the environment and our diverse wildlife.
The aim of the Senior School program at Elephant Whispers is to teach students, using a hands on approach, about the physiology of elephant. Senior school groups are made aware of the issues and diverse approaches to conservation. We hope to enthuse Learners to actively participate in conserving wildlife. The content of the information given during the Elephant Interaction varies in accordance to the age of the school group. Primary school groups spend a wonderful hour touching, feeding and learning about African Elephant, and touch on the challenges facing elephant in Southern Africa.
The Elephant Whispers elephants are fulfilling an essential function as wildlife ambassadors for their own kind. We believe they will make a positive contribution towards empowering our country’s youth to ensure the long term sustainable future of elephant in Africa.
