Update 1 February 2023 – Many thanks to those who have taken interest and helped with the Coexistence Kids and Living with Big Cats over the years. We are now in our new phase of the education evolution where we’re working on environmental studies portals through digital platforms. This has been in development since the height of the covid-19 pandemic. The initial learning group at Bardiya National Park in west Nepal was the model developed and learnt from with growth to include other areas of Nepal as well as regions in India coming on stream throughout 2023. This combined with information received through LeopardEye especially for those children living in highly affected areas with human-wildlife conflict means greater understanding. From coordinator Jack Kinross, “it’s not just a matter of giving children a good education, it’s the definition of a good education, the human future on the planet depends on that”.

In conjunction with the Jane Goodall Institute Nepal you’ll see clips throughout 2023 on our newly formed YouTube Channel explaining and facilitating the direction of the platform which is for anyone anywhere but will be very much run by two sets of children in Nepal, one from the jungles of the Terai, the other from the Himalaya, two groups living in equally important ecosystems, both vitally important.

Our thanks to collaborators and supporters, most of whom wish to remain anonymous. At this point we’d like to acknowledge the Youth Education and Training Initiatives (YETI) Nepal Trust (a New Zealand organization) and Nepally Dream (a France-Nepal organization).
