At the beginning of June, a Children’s Bushcamp has been held in W National Parc in North Benin.
The second Children’s Bushcamp of the Leo Foundation in Cameroon was a big success! This April 216 children and their teachers stayed one and a half day at Bénoué National Park. During an interactive program the children learned about the flora and fauna of the nature close to home. ‘Both the children as their teachers told us that they learned many new things regarding nature,’ reports Elise Bakker from the field.
One of our most important projects is the organisation of Children’s Bushcamps in the Bénoué complex in Cameroon. We give local pupils a first opportunity to experience nature and wildlife. In this way, we teach a new generation the importance of nature in their neighbourhood and conservation of it.
