The focus of KOP’s work is the dissemination of accurate information regarding the functions of the tropical rainforest and the species that live within. A lack of information, or misinformation, can lead to human attitudes and actions that create barriers to species recovery, and or healthy, sustainable populations.
First implemented in 2016 as a pilot project, in the district of Las Margaritas, we directly reached over 100 students and 10 teachers; introducing them to our Kaminando jaguar conservation program.
In 2017, we visited the schools of three communities in the Mamoní Valley: San José de Madroño, La Saina, and Mamoní Arriba. Through videos and games, students learned about the forest, the jaguar, and their importance keeping the ecosystem in balance.
