Our one-hour presentations provide a glimpse into the research findings of the Cape Leopard Trust. Showing photographs from camera traps or a map of the range of an adult leopard, these presentations are ideal for school size groups and classrooms alike. They can be adapted for children, young people and adults over the age of ten but are not suitable for younger audiences.
Pricing: All presentations are free of charge for groups of 15 or more; we appreciate a donation towards the cost of our transportation where possible.
The eco-clubs are an effective way to have a longer interaction with groups to build on a theme over a series of activities and outings. The goal of the eco clubs is to support the initial stages of a school based club that will continue after the involvement of The Cape Leopard Trust. Themes vary depending on the interest and focus of a club; however, most eco clubs do at least six sessions with an Environmental Educator. Sessions will usually include school based activities such as presentations, a sustainability assessment of the building or planting a vegetable garden. A club will also include various outings to local nature reserves where students may learn how to do a river water assessment, explore caves or challenge themselves with a hike.
