Education is key to our work...
...and makes a real difference in how future generations view, learn about and live with all creatures, great and small, with whom we share our planet.
For many students Safari West is the first, and often times the only, experience they will have with interactive wildlife conservation.
Each year, over 10,000 schoolchildren visit Safari West on field trips. But these are no ordinary field trips.
Teachers who bring their students to Safari West may choose from two workshops in science and conservation teaching techniques:
These workshops are accredited through Sonoma State University.
After the workshops, teachers spend approximately three months preparing the students for their trip to Safari West Wildlife Preserve. Our approach to student zoology follows the guidelines of the California State Science Framework.
