23 October 2018 Foundation: Holy Cross School visit

We were thrilled to host the Holy Cross School last week for their annual environmental education week, which Pumba has played a part in since 2010. The young children from our local community, ranging from 5 – 10 years old, are taken out on an informative game drive in which they are educated by some of our experienced field guides. 

The kids were lucky enough to see lion, elephant, hippo, cheetah, zebra, giraffe and many more animals as the were guided through the eastern cape thicket. These environmental education programs are essential at grass roots level to ensure that children growing up are aware of the impact we are having on the environment around us and the ever growing concern regarding our natural habitats and species. 

The Eastern Cape boasts a proud heritage and a wide biodiversity with certain flora and fauna species being endemic to our area, meaning they do not occur anywhere else in the world. 

The day is not only enjoyed by the children, but by the teachers and guides themselves, who are thrilled to have such a captivated and willing audience that is ready to engage with their surroundings, we can’t wait until next year!
