Educational experiences on Kaipupu Sanctuary
Environmental or conservation-based education plays a vital role in engaging and inspiring our community to take action in their own backyard. At Kaipupu Sanctuary we believe that experience experience-based activities capture the hearts and minds by engaging the senses — touch, sight , sound and smell. For our school or group visits it is about experiences beyond the classroom. Local students learn about the native plant s and animals present on the Sanctuary and what we can all do to help protect them.
We offer the Kaipupu Experience which is an environmental education programme that can be tailored to suit the needs of school groups from kindergartens to secondary level.
This programme includes concepts like:
The take-home message for the students is that if native forest is kept free from predators, browsing pests and weeds, the native bush will regenerate vigorously into the future.
We also offer other programmes at other times of the year so if you are interested in finding out more please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
