Wild African Rhinos

Date TBC
  • 60 mins
  • Age 7-11

Science: identification & classification; what animals need to survive; development and growth; living things and their habitats; human impact.

Geography: location knowledge; climate zones and biomes

Mini safari overview

Tracking Rhinos across the savanna, we learn about their habitat, their human, animal and plant neighbours, how to identify species from their spoor, and the amazing work being done to protect them from poaching.

Learning is brought alive by our partners and the wider community of trackers, guides, orphanage staff, and scientists.

Drivers to biodiversity loss

The UN has identified five main drivers to biodiversity loss:

  1. Habitat loss

  2. Climate change

  3. Direct exploitation

  4. Pollution

  5. Invasive species

While many species will be affected by a combination of factors, in the lessons we have assigned a ‘main driver’ to each of the species:

  • Direct exploitation of rhinos

  • Forest habitat loss and fragmentation for Ader’s duiker and sinu

  • Climate change and cheetahs

  • Plastic pollution and turtles
