Our theme, Waste & Recycling, focused on teaching Wildlife Warriors about:
- Types of waste
- Effects of waste on humans, animals and the environment
- How to manage waste
- Importance of waste management
Thanks to the Elewana camp managers, camp guides and representatives from partner organisations, the Wildlife Warriors came away from the day with a refreshed outlook on waste management.
The day also involved asking the Wildlife Warriors to recycle waste into useful items, culminating in a Wildlife Warrior Recycling Art Competition at each of the schools.
The Wildlife Warriors let their imaginations run wild, making fantastic items ranging from necklaces and placemats to gift baskets and skipping ropes, from the various waste materials provided.
Competition was stiff, with the winners creating the most outstanding items from the rest.
They will be awarded next term with a game drive in their local wildlife area, followed by a tour, tea and cake at their nearest Elewana camp.
Many thanks to all of you who supported the Wildlife Warrior Program by providing waste materials – and huge thanks to all the camp managers and guides involved, as we couldn’t do it without you!
