April 17-23, 2016, marks the 12th Annual Environmental Education Week. To promote environmental education in Cambodia, Wildlife Alliance created the nation's only mobile environmental education unit, the Kouprey Express (KE), in 2005. The KE travels around Cambodia to urban and remote rural locations to teach students and communities the importance of environmental responsibility. They provide student lessons and teacher training workshops on wildlife and habitat protection, climate change, and pollution prevention. Our Community Nights Shows allow everyone to participate in the area and focus on the illegal wildlife trade, the importance of protecting forests, and Cambodia’s wildlife laws. Field Trips to the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center allow children to meet animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade, and see firsthand the implications of such actions. To date, the KE has directly reached more than 200,000 schoolchildren, teachers and community members. By donating $50, you can provide an interactive wildlife lesson for students in rural areas!

Looking for a way to educate a child about wildlife conservation and environmental laws? Check out the new book, Jordan and Justine’s Weekend Adventures for Wildlife Alliance! The author, Tanille Edwards, and publishing company, Fire Flies Entertainment, have partnered with Wildlife Alliance to share 50% of the proceeds of each book sold. The book is available in print or ebook, and the proceeds go directly toward our conservation efforts. You can purchase it from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks and Kobo.
