A MOBILE EDUCATION UNIT
In April 2013, The European Nature Trust launched the Wild Kingdom education initiative.
The aim of the project is to provide children with an environmental education and teach them the value of Romania’s incredible natural resources. Like many other countries, environmental education is not currently a standard part of the Romanian school curriculum – we believe it should be.
The Wild Kingdom team travel to different areas throughout rural Romania in two mobile education units (specially designed buses). During the school visits, a lesson is given to the students which teaches them about the importance of protecting the last untouched forests of Europe, and breaks down the barrier between man and the natural world.
To date, the Wild Kingdom buses have visited over 200 schools from 7 counties and engaged over 60,000 children. The Wild Kingdom bus project is supported by HRH, The Prince of Wales, and features in the popular Wild Carpathia documentary series, and on Romanian National television.
