What is Environmental Education?
ANAW’s environmental education program increases people’s knowledge and awareness about current environmental and conservation challenges within local and global communities.
This type of education opportunity develops the necessary knowledge and abilities to address challenges; fosters positive attitude and motivation for change; increases commitment to make informed decisions; and take responsible action in regards to conservation and animal welfare concerns.
Environmental Education at ANAW
Through environmental education opportunities, ANAW hopes that people and communities will identify with the values of compassion and kindness towards all life on earth, and to have the desire to treat nature, humans, and other animals with respect.
ANAW offers environmental education and assistance to communities and individuals in order to foster behavior that promotes healthy environments, humans, and other animals. Examples include creating economic alternatives to poaching and addressing deforestation by providing resources for planting trees.
