We went to Botswana with the aim of teaching conservation education and what we learned about children from disadvantaged communities was contrary to popular belief. These children were extremely smart, they had passion for wildlife, and also understood conservation issues. We learned that a large part of conservation education was connecting conservation to people’s lives. By making conservation a relatable concept the learners then started to understand its importance and to realize that the ultimate goal of conservation is preservation of our own wellbeing.
