WWF is a reliable source of information, and offered activities, current info, and posters I can use this year.

I felt that they have the best learning materials for demonstrations. The platform is super with well updated information serving the purposes and presenting handy information to the educators.
~Karen Kathambi / Nairobi, Kenya

I was interested in the WWF toolkits for the research, and was interested in how that research was communicated for its application in art education about wildlife conservation. I was pleasantly surprised by the structure of the curriculum based material.
