Following activities in the Conservation Education Project of SVW for preschool and elementary students, an experiment of an experiential education tour for students in Grade 7 of Ngo Si Lien school, going along with 15 their parents and homeroom teachers had been completed in this December.
The successful implementation of the tour marks a certain point in SVW's long-term conservation education strategy, which drives to attract voluntary participation and willingness to pay all the fee from the parents and schools for the tour. Compared to our education program in last three years with fully funded, this program totally brings a big difference from it.
To evaluate the tour’s results, we conducted an online test for students and their parents. 100% students were aware that plants and animals can be extinct if people continue to overuse or exploit the nature. More than 83% of them choose not to use Pangolin products, even when a family’s member asks for. 33% kids were willing to tell their parents about non-visiting the places which consume wildlife products. Last but not least, all the parent agreed to allow their children to join activities held by SVW.
