Update October 2022 – Many thanks to those who have taken interest and helped with the Coexistence Kids and Living with Big Cats over the years. We are currently forming a collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) Nepal. The new structure with JGI includes conservation dramas in line with the JGI Roots and Shoots program as we head into 2023.
A key component that is part of evilution is environmental studies portals through digital platforms. This has been in development since the height of the covid-19 pandemic. The initial learning group at Bardiya National Park in west Nepal is being enlarged upon to include other areas of Nepal with the Mission Leopard reboot in February 2023 with regions in India coming on stream as well. This combined with information received through LeopardEye especially for those children living in highly affected areas with human-wildlife conflict means greater understanding. From coordinator Jack Kinross, “it’s not just a matter of giving children a good education, it’s the definition of a good education, the human future on the planet depends on that”.
Our new YouTube Channel is up and running, short clips to educate:
Our thanks to collaborators and supporters, most of whom wish to remain anonymous. At this point we’d like to acknowledge the Youth Education and Training Initiatives (YETI) Nepal Trust (a New Zealand organization) and Nepally Dream (a France-Nepal organization).
