What are other educators doing to support the GSPC? - Target 7
Target 7: 60% of the world’s threatened species conserved in situ.
Is there a connection between the education department and public awareness campaigns in house to raise money for in situ provision? Do you work with conservation areas within your site, for example by having guided walks or trails through nature areas or interpreting conservation zones? Are there discussion exercises about the importance of maintaining habitat and its value with college groups?
Set up education programme for disaffected children in summer holidays which included identification of native species and looking at sustainability.
Assist with international links and encouraging teachers to set up school grounds gardens
Annual participation in schools, colleges and university courses
