No matter who we are or where we are from, we can all make small but meaningful contributions to protect and enhance the world we live in. As part of our Global Twinning Program we assist Australian kids achieve their own local environmental goals, by focusing on simple actions that contribute to conservation of native fauna and flora and easy ways we can all live more sustainably. 

 

Please get in touch to enquire about our unique range of Australian schools activities we can offer, including:

We offer a wide range of koala conservation activities for school-aged children, from single one-off sessions to a series of activities delivered throughout the year. 

  • Be a Koala Champion!  In-person and expert led, classroom based and practical koala conservation activities tailored to suite grades Prep – 12, including koala experiences, koala conservation dogs and responsible dog owner demonstrations and koala tree planting
  • Want to take the next step?  Be Koala Smart! This free program can be applied to any school or any class. You chose how to apply the classroom-ready content depending on what best suits your needs, your school’s size, its programs and resources.

A global citizen is someone who cares about the wider world, about the whole of our planet and all the people and animals who live on it. Our Good Global Citizen Program that involves twinning schools from Australia and Kenya, helps our young generation learn and take action to make the world more sustainable.

  •  Learn about Maasai culture and their way of life, their connection to the land and wildlife. We take a look at some of the challenges that we have in common, and also those that we have that are very different.
  • Letter writing exchange with students from Kenya ‘twinning’ school – students share stories about their lives, culture, wildlife and the environment they live in.
  • Kenya school-support activities, such as raising money to deliver specific project goals such as to buy books, solar lights, or school lunches for global classmates.

A small but pivotal source of our funding is from recycling. Recycling 10c containers (such as school poppas) is an excellent way, specially for young people, to help people and planet.  We assist in setting up class or full school recycling programs, short or long term.

The program allows students to follow their progress in improving their own local environment (including how much water, energy, and landfill they have saved through their efforts) and set targets for funds they want to raise by recycling 10c eligible containers. As just one example, 1.5 orange recycle bags can buy a solar light for a student in Kenya so they can study after dark!

We all have a role to play to secure a sustainable future

From helping native fauna and flora, to sustainable living in the home, here are some useful tips and links to get you started

Wildlife and habitat

Creating habitat for wildlife

Under development – please check back later

Backyards, schools, parks, and street trees can provide habitat for wildlife and play a significant role in contributing to biodiversity. By giving some thought to the needs of native wildlife when designing your sustainable garden, you are likely to encourage a much greater variety of native birds, mammals, and other fauna.

During ongoing dry weather and periods of extreme heat, it is important that we care for our native wildlife.

Remember the following when providing access to water in your garden:

  • use a shallow non-metal dish or bowl to ensure wildlife can’t drown
  • make sure domestic animals and pets cannot access the water
  • change the water daily and ensure the dish or bowl is kept clean
  • install the water in a shaded location to keep the water cool, preferably close to a shrub or tree to provide a nearby safe place.
