New PACE workbook

The latest PACE resource, co-produced with VulPro and the Southern Africa Wildlife College, celebrates the work of young conservationists in clubs we partnered with last year.  We were thrilled and inspired by the artwork they shared with us: poems, stories, anecdotes, drawings and painting, sent by students and their teachers, some from VulCha and other school clubs, some from kids who'd made school excursions or just had a class on wildlife.  The creativity is inspiring, the insight, understanding and compassion is [...]

New edition of the Vulture resource

We did a lot of work on Vulture education over the last year, and are thrilled at how popular and successful it has been.  It started with VulPro in South Africa, helping to get their conservation message into schools and communities over a much wider area than they could reach alone.  Vulture populations across Africa are struggling, and it's largely due to lack of information, and misperceptions.  Popular culture worldwide tends to attribute rather negative traits to vultures, which in reality [...]

A new PACE resource – Vultures.

Vultures are awesome birds. They are majestic, amusing, vulnerable, and yet sadly, are much misunderstood. Most of us know very little about vultures, and though we don't realise, much of what we do know tends to be myth and speculation. That's why we teamed up with VulPro in South Africa to produce a new resource. It's designed for school and community use, is available in print and digital, in English and Portuguese. We are also running interactive on-line sessions for schools [...]

Do you have a waste management problem in your neighbourhood?

  If so, you may get some ideas on how to solve it from the Shela Environmental Residents Group (SERG) in Kenya. Over just a few years the village worked together to transform their beaches, streets and public spaces, from somewhere that people tolerated and suffered into a clean, bright, healthy and happy place that they are proud of and visitors admire. The Shela Environmental Residents Group worked with Lamu Marine Conservation Trust (LaMCoT) and Africa Underwater to create a new [...]

Solving community waste management challenges – a new PACE film from Kenya

  Waste management is a problem commonly faced by communities across Africa. Poor waste management impacts on people's health and their well-being, it disrupts ecosystems, and is harmful to wildlife. People know this, but often don't know what they can do as individuals, to solve the problems. We are very proud to have worked with Lamu Marine Conservation Trust, a long-standing Tusk partner, and Africa Underwater. Together they created a new short film documenting a local waste management success story they [...]

“Thank you for making my work easier and impactful”

The Uganda Wildlife Education Centre provide visits, workshops and outreach for schools and communities in the Entebbe area, and from further afield.  We are thrilled that access to PACE resources has enabled them to increase their impact. Richard Otiti, Conservation Educator at UWEC, has been organising seminars to help communities live peacefully alongside their wildlife neighbours. "Lugasa School for example neighbours Mabira Forest Reserve. The communities where the school is located are currently struggling with Vervet monkeys.  The monkeys destroy crops.  [...]

New avenues for learning

We are Nathashia Khosa, Siphokazi Sibeko and Bongiwe Hlabane.  We are interns in the Southern Africa Wildlife College,  in the Community and Youth Development department.

This week the PACE coordinator visited.  At the beginning of [...]

Bee keeping action sheet

Human beings have been collecting honey and other products from wild bees for thousands of years.  But it can be difficult to find wild bee nests and can be risky to remove the honey.  Beekeeping on the other hand, is a fantastic way to conveniently access your own supply of honey, at little cost.  As well as providing honey and wax for home consumption, honeybee products can be sold to provide a good income, either locally or on a bigger scale.
