To date more than 1 million children have seen Nature for Kids innovative materials. The number is growing every day. Partner organizations have stated that the NfK program, because of its unique approach, is very inspiring for children as well as for teachers and has resulted in concrete activities in order to save wildlife and improve their natural surroundings such as building waste stations, cultivating crops, planting trees and providing healthy drinking water.
Over the years, Nature for Kids has built a good reputation and has proven to be a reliable partner organization that develops innovative educational materials.
A growing amount of partner organizations want to work with our materials; there is a demand not only for the existing materials in several languages but also for new material.
The organization has just developed and produced unique educational materials and films to promote conservation of great apes and other primates in Africa. This will provide the first ape-conservation videos designed for African children. The gorillas, bonobos and chimpanzees are endangered because of industry driven deforestation and agriculture. The forests get more accessible and hunters get the opportunity to enter. The commercialization of primates as bush meat demands more and more victims. A lot of primates are mutilated or killed by accidental snaring resulting from poaching of other animals. The GAEP is a collaboration with three Ugandan based organisation; U.N.I.T.E. for the Environment, The Kasiisi Projectand the Max Plank Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology.
