Community Conservation Leadership (G10-12)
In this program students will develop skills to explore and critically analyse ideas in the creation of positive community conservation strategies. Students will have a chance to find out what projects the Calgary Zoo is currently looking into and to debate how they would develop the project before discovering how the experts are going about it. We will use an award-winning example of community-based conservation, the Wechiau Hippo Sanctuary, as a model. Click HERE for a more detailed outline of the program.
