At the beginning of this week we turned Mokolodi Nature Reserve into our classroom. It is a nature reserve that was once a cattle ranch and now has wildlife, some of it being rehabilitated, largely due to human wildlife conflict. They use the reserve to educate locals and visitors on conservation, from protecting the wildlife to introducing techniques of soil management. In drought conditions, the soil and water are a high priority in the circle of life. The students learned different animal tracks, ways of identifying genders of animals and much more. They enjoyed a game drive (safari), nature walk and joined in on some activities to help the reserve in their conservation efforts.
