Pan African Conservation Education

The PACE project, run in partnership with Tusk Trust, shares solutions to environmental problems between African communities.

The pace packSiren fields PACE enquiries, organizes shipping and develops conservation education projects with partner organizations all over Africa. Close to 400 organisations across the continent have now received the PACE materials.

“A wonderful resource, and a great tool for educators working in Africa.”  Ian Signer, Conservation Education Consultant to WCS

“Tusk is defined not just by over a hundred amazing projects in Africa, but also by the ground-breaking educational programmes that it has developed for local communities throughout the Continent, and at schools over here as well.  If you haven’t already seen Tusk’s PACE environmental education films and books, I urge you to do so: they are quite extraordinary. The imperative of balancing conservation of wildlife and natural resources with the ever-growing needs of the human race is at the heart of the great challenge facing mankind today.”  HRH The Duke of Cambridge, Royal Patron of Tusk Trust

PACE partnership initiatives in Cameroon, Madagascar and Uganda provide conservation education training to teachers and teaching colleges. Teachers reach thousands of students through the course of their careers. Their influential role gives them the ability to affect their students’ well-being, environmental attitudes and behaviour. We aim to support this process with useful resources and enhanced training opportunities.

This strand of Siren’s work grew from a successful project with the Painted Dog Conservation Project in Zimbabwe, also delivered in partnership with Tusk. More details of this project including original artwork and educational resources can be found here.
