Bangamukande Education Pack

Capture monkey1

This is a teaching pack that I produced as part of an environmental education and community outreach programme in Sri Lanka in 2005. It was developed alongside an existing community-based conservation (CBC) project restoring rainforest in the wet zone ecoregion of southwestern Sri Lanka, one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. The education and outreach programme was funded by the Born Free Foundation and the Primate Society of Great Britain (PSGB) and was awarded the prestigious BP Future Conservationist Award.

The pack was translated into Sinhalese and distributed with much needed resources such as colouring pencils and exercise books to primary schools and Buddhist hermitages in the region. Although specific to the flora and fauna of this particular part of Sri Lanka, the pack contains some fun ideas for teaching younger students about wildlife conservation and the natural world.
