From humble beginnings more than 30 years ago, our school has grown into a beacon of conservation, sustainability, education and hope for the future. Our vision is to help the children and youth of our nation to discover the true value of the biodiversity of the natural world and our place within it, and to identify and nurture Africa’s future conservation champions.

We consider it an immense privilege to have the opportunity to instil a passion for nature in the hearts of young people and it is our hope that by doing so, we are playing a part in creating a better future for all South Africans, our country, and the planet.
