Stripes and frogs visit local schools

Stripes the Eco-Cat and the Citizen Science Frog Monitoring Project are being showcased to about 2000 children around the Overstrand region. Both these Whale Coast Conservation projects are beneficiaries under the ABI Small Grants Facility. They’re part of the Sustainability Expo 2015, visiting Gansbaai, Hermanus, Stanford and other towns here. Well done to WCC for raising conservation themes with the region’s children.

Taking nature education to our children

Environmental education in the Overberg received a boost – thanks to the Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative (ABI) Small Grants Programme. Environmental education coordinator, Gretha Louw – who received support from ABI through its Small Grants Facility – has used the funding to acquire a digital microscope and other gadgets, used to teach children about nature and sustainable life on earth.
