Children are the future and the reason why we protect and sustainably use the wildlife for them to be able to see and enjoy. But all the work done today is not sufficient if we don’t plant the seeds of valuing wildlife, conservation and the beauty of the world in the children of today.
This is why, Bianca Rosen (daughter of our Panthera colleague), together with Shirin Mukhametkadyr Kyzy, Gulbahor Kaikovusova, worked during the summer of 2018 in Alichur, part of the Burgut conservancy, with a group of 45 children, aged 4-16. Through games and opportunities to hike in the mountains, learn how to use GPSs, binoculars, spotting scopes and camera traps, they became more vividly acquainted with the beauty and treasures surrounding them.
We hope from now on to include more children in the Burgut conservancy as well as in other conservancies in a series of exciting activities aimed at nurturing the conservation heroes of the future.
