Education and Resources

Changing the world, one heart and mind at a time

Educating young people about the incredible wildlife and ecosystems around them is the long-lasting answer to sustainability. We believe that by igniting curiosity, empathy, and passion for wildlife, we will create conservation warriors for the future. Our education programs are the heart of our organization and the hope for real and significant change for the future.

Our Jane Goodall Roots and Shoots Wildlife Education Programs take place deep in the jungles of Costa Rica. We focus on indigenous communities where poaching of wildlife and habitat destruction are high. By educating the area youth about the importance of keeping the balance between animals, ecosystems, and humans, we hope to create a sense of empathy and knowledge to make an enduring change for wildlife while simultaneously assisting the adult community with alternative livelihoods.

We also offer Educational Wildlife presentations in San Diego County, where school, scout, and home school groups can get up close and personal with our animal ambassadors to learn about them and their wild ancestors.

Young people, when informed and empowered, when they realize what they do truly makes a difference, can indeed change the world. They are changing it already
