Pan African Conservation Education Project - PACE 2005

Pan African Conservation Education Project

PACE supports conservation and sustainability education, providing ideas, information and training for teachers and learners across Africa.

Created by Tusk and Siren Conservation Education, PACE (Pan African Conservation Education) shares simple ideas and information and training. Our goal is to help people live well and sustainably alongside the wildlife and ecosystems we all depend on.

PACE provides cutting edge educational resources, free of charge, digital and print, to partners across Africa. PACE resources are used for all ages, urban and rural, across Africa. They are used by teachers, youth leaders, farmers, wildlife rangers, community development workers, and just for reading at home.

Resources are arranged in modules: Living with Wildlife, Water, Soil, Trees, Energy, Urban Living, Living by the Ocean, Health and Careers in Conservation.          

  • A beautifully illustrated reader provides background to each module.
  • Thirty-three short films share grass roots success stories.
  • Action sheets explain how to put the solutions into practice: as practical projects for schools, home or community groups.
  • There is more detailed information on key issues like Climate change, and misunderstood species like Vultures and Painted dogs.
  • There is an Educator’s guide and posters.

Tusk has nurtured PACE from a rough concept to a far-reaching programme with increasing demand from practitioners. Requests for materials come from wildlife guards, conservation projects and educators. PACE runs a wide range of on-line events that are popular with students, teachers and conservationists.

Evaluations show that PACE helps – it helps educators, helps learners, and makes a difference on the ground.
