EDUCATION

& OUTREACH

RESPECT & PROTECT 

PROGRAMME

Our Respect & Respect Outreach Programme aims to educate and inspire individuals to care about wildlife and their natural habitats. Please take a look at the opportunities available. If you would like to find out more about our work and discuss having our outreach team visit your school or community group then get in contact with us today

Please note that minimal human contact is vital for the welfare of wildlife patients – we do not bring wild animals to our talks.

SCHOOL

OUTREACH

Our schools and community education programme delivers fun, memorable learning experiences for young people to inspire their curiosity and encourage a love of British wildlife. 

 

Why is this type of education important?

  • To inspire young people to respect and protect wildlife through furthering their knowledge and understanding.

  • To encourage young people to be active outdoors and reconnect with nature to improve health and wellbeing.

  • To increase understanding of how human activities can directly affect wildlife and how to make practical and positive changes for the better.

  • Education can reduce the incidence of wildlife injuries, casualties and orphans that would otherwise die or require the care of a wildlife rehabilitation centre.

  • To encourage children to participate in fundraising in aid of the wildlife patients at Brent Lodge

 

Who is the programme aimed at?

West Sussex and East Hampshire-based schools and groups with cross-curricular and extra-curricular talks, activities and workshops – eg Scouts, Guides, Brownies, Rainbows, Cubs, after-school clubs or community groups.

 

How much does it cost and what is available?

The programme has mostly been achieved through funds awarded by grants and other charitable trusts. Depending on your visit location and requirements we do ask for a contribution towards our time, travel and resources to enable us to keep our programme running and support wildlife in our care.

 

Each visit consists of a presentation and introductory group discussion, fun interactive games and an optional art activity to finish. We are able to adapt our presentations and workshops to suit your desired topic. In return for these visits we do ask for any activity resources to be provided by the school/group and a collection of essential hospital items from our Wishlist. For a more practical workshop we do ask for a further contribution.

  • Introductory assemblies

  • Group/class talk and discussion

  • Art activities (Basic resources to be provided by school or group leader. Photocopies, paints, scissors, glue)

  • Multiple classes and practical workshops.  (An additional donation of £2-£3 per child depending on requested activity)

To get started.....please let us know what you have in mind and we can discuss potential options!
