What We Do & How We Do It

To educate children from underprivileged communities that have limited access to information. The children will be taught basic ecological principles and the importance of conservation.

To create a connection between people and wildlife through first-hand engagement on educational excursions to reserves. This will be done by taking the children on game drives.

To raise money to fund FGASA courses for identified outstanding students. FGASA courses will enable these students to become qualified game rangers and find continuous employment. The learners receiving these bursaries will be encouraged to return to LiC and teach the new generation in underprivileged areas. 

LiC identifies communities with youth that have the potential to be awakened and our passionate teams then conducts lessons in these communities.

LiC has created a six-lesson syllabus:

  • The first 4 lessons are similar across all regions, focussing on the broad strokes of conservation and ecology, they are only adapted with area-specific examples to make the lessons more identifiable and understandable to the children.
  • The final 2 lessons change dependent on the region, as each region and country faces different conservation issues. We pride ourselves on helping to create locally crafted conservation solutions to understand and solve local problems.

The lessons often include the use of physical specimens (carcasses and preserved animals) and games to ensure that the information being portrayed is both practical and interactive.

In addition to the 6 lesson-syllabus taught, we take the children on wildlife excursions to not only build on the principles taught but also for them to develop a deeper understanding of nature and conservation through a first-hand wildlife experience.

The Sustainable Cycle of Lessons in Conservation

The goal is that all the children who participate in our program will continue to share their new-found knowledge on conservation; impacting and altering their communities beliefs and behaviours, creating a sustainable cycle of conservation between nature and people.

We also hope to identify students who display drive, passion and a desire to work in conservation. These students will then be sponsored to complete a FGASA course. This will enable them to become qualified game rangers and find continuous employment in the industry. The learners receiving these bursaries will be encouraged to return to LiC and teach the new generations in underprivileged areas, creating a sustainable and perpetual cycle of conservation between nature and people.
