Wildlife Alliance created Cambodia’s only mobile environmental education unit, the Kouprey Express (KE), in 2005. The KE does not just raise awareness or educate people on the value of conservation and biodiversity protection; it fosters positive behavioral changes towards environmental sustainability and actively encourages children and adults to be front line defenders of their natural resources.

Bringing together communities, local knowledge, experience, and tradition, the KE travels around Cambodia to urban and remote rural locations to instill in the Cambodian youth and communities a sense of pride in their natural heritage and a culture of social responsibility.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, the KE works directly with students, teachers, schools, and villages, providing creative, fun and tailored hands-on lessons and activities to improve knowledge about the environment and what people can do to protect it. Read more
