We believe one of the most important ways to aid in the fight against the illegal wildlife trade and conservation of wildlife is through education.
Education can be our most powerful tool in battling wildlife crime. Local people may not know how their actions affect their native wildlife so it is of upmost importance to show them the issues and provide them with alternative solutions. We believe we should work with, not against, our local communities as they can be the key to help the fight against the illegal wildlife trade.
LCTW has an international volunteer programme in which people from all walks of life can come and volunteer with us. These volunteers are essential to the running of our centre and are provided with educational tours and briefings about the work we do, conservation of our wildlife and ethical eco-tourism. These wonderful volunteers from all over the globe then take this message and spread it far and wide.
We also host specially themed education events during public holidays and on certain dates throughout the year. Keep an eye out on our social media pages to see if any events are coming up.
Outside of our centre, we have Educational Outreach programmes in schools for students of varying ages to learn more about wildlife conservation and the threats animals face in their country. We believe that everyone can benefit from being given the access to knowledge about wildlife conservation and the illegal wildlife trade, we encourage visitors from all countries to come and learn more.
