Wild Nature Institute – Celebrating Africa’s Giants

Date grant awarded: June 8, 2019

Celebrating Africa’s Giants is a project of the Wild Nature Institute that develops meaningful conservation awareness of giraffes, elephants, rhinos, and their habitats. Their core program curricula has worked primarily with educators in Tanzania and has reached over 25,000 children. With The Pollination Project’s grant, they will now be able to expand this robust curricula into environmental education programs in zoos and schools in the United States.

They have developed a library of free books and posters for primary and secondary schools to teach math, language arts, science, and other subjects using giraffes, elephants, rhinos, and their habitats. The long-term conservation of these species and their habitats will require a sustained interest from people from around the world, and with this grant, they will have the opportunity to reach thousands more.
