Students Draw Attention to Wildlife Trafficking at School Event

The International School of Phnom Penh’s Grade 5 class hosted their annual PYP Exhibition on March 22-23 and it was amazing! Wildlife trafficking has become a hot topic among the students and was featured prominently in this year’s expo. Several NGOs, including Wildlife Alliance, were invited to speak to the students late last year about social and environmental challenges and the work they are doing to tackle these issues. Students then selected issues important to them and expressed them through music, dance, theater, painting, sculpture, film and interactive displays such as a pangolin awareness video game, sending a range of strong environmental and human rights messages to their captivated audiences. Wildlife Alliance is so inspired to see the younger generation take these issues to heart and not only learn about them but take initiative and action to do their part to protect Cambodia’s natural heritage. A huge thank you from Wildlife Alliance for drawing attention to wildlife trafficking in Cambodia and congratulations to all students and teachers on such a fantastic display of learning and creativity!
