The participants of our environmental education programs, either custom or standard, make a conscious decision to promote a sustainable and symbiotic relationship between themselves and the environment.
The key goal of Conservation Global’s (CG’s) programs is to explore the interactive and interdependent relationship between science, economics, and culture and to promote awareness and respect for the needs of the natural world to the next generation of environmentalists.
Conservation Global provides a platform in which people with a vested interest in the environment can participate in taught programs (link to courses) that are grounded in ongoing research programs (link to projects). CG aims to improve the overall condition of natural areas by producing knowledgeable and passionate environmental stewards.
We believe that awareness is fundamental to successfully passing on the torch to future generations. Likewise, we believe that a combination of interactive taught programs and grassroots research programs provide the groundwork for a highly unique professional and personal growth experience.
I spent two weeks in South Africa with Conservation Global in a partnered trip with Franklin University Switzerland. It is safe to say that these two weeks are by far the most memorable of my life thanks to the effort Conservation Global put into both the educational and adventurous aspects of our trip. From hiking up Lion’s Head in Cape Town, diving with Great White sharks in the Indian ocean, and near encounters with the endangered White Rhinoceros, this NGO helped plan an incredible experience for my research conservation class. If it were not for Conservation Global I do not think we could have done many of the activities we did- such as engage with students at Tsiba College on issues of sustainability on our campuses, and meet and listen to Mark Rutherford lecture on how to run Gondwana Game Reserve. I will forever be grateful for these two weeks and for all of the hard work Conservation Global put into this experience!
Conservation Global organized a dually educational and adventurous experience across South Africa. As a student I was able to learn more about apartheid and its effects on the nation from prominent political leaders. Also, I was able to better understand the needs and efforts of conservationists across the area to protect some of the worlds most endangered animals. From finding dolphins in the Indian Ocean, cage diving with great whites, and spotting lions on the game reserve, this experience reestablished the necessity in myself to protect our wild lands across the globe. If we do not protect them, who will?
