THE LAUNCH OF OUR NEW EDUCATION PACK
We have recently published a new School Education Pack and Teachers Pack to encourage pupils to learn about rainforests and what they could do to help them.
The pack has been designed with the KS2 National Curriculum in mind and can be used alongside the lesson ideas in the Teacher's booklet. The pack will teach children all about the people, animals and plants that live in the rainforest and threats which they are facing. It also tells how the Rainforest Foundation protects people, animal and plants and how pupils can help them. It is full of pictures and "Thinking Points" to encourage pupils to initiate discussion.
A Brief Introduction of the Rainforest Foundation UK
The Rainforest Foundation UK has been working for 24 years to support indigenous peoples and traditional populations of the world's rainforest in their efforts to protect their environment and fulfil their rights to land, life and livelihood.
We believe that the best way to protect the rainforest for future generations is to allow the indigenous peoples' who live in the forests to control what happens to their land. Because these people depend on the rainforest to live, they often do the best job at protecting it. We work to help local communities secure legal rights over the land they have lived on for hundreds, and sometimes thousands of years, to ensure that they are able to continue doing this.
