Helping local children develop a sense of pride and connectedness to their natural heritage by exposing them to the forests and wildlife in Pakke Tiger Reserve.
Pakke Nature Clubs
2017 was an exciting year for us because it witnessed the birthof our Nature Education program. As a first step, we set up natureclubs in 7 local schools in the Seijosa area, through which weare reaching out to over 650 children from Classes 6-9.
The main aim of the Pakke Nature Clubs is to expose children to the forests and wildlife around Pakke Tiger Reserve through year-round activities, which culminate in nature camps inside the park.
