School Outreach

One of the key aims of the Animal Neighbours Project is education; we are dedicated to raising awareness of human-animal conflict. We want to ensure that people not only understand why human-animal conflict arises – and the role that we all play in this – but also ways in which we can counteract and mitigate this conflict. We intend to reach people of all ages and walks of life and have begun our work in the UK focusing on primary and secondary school students.

Our outreach events include:

* Attending school fayres, using interactive games to discuss the consequences of feeding wild animals.

* Talks at school and universities.

* Research talks at secondary schools, discussing the research projects performed by the Animal Neighbours Project and the impact this research hopes to have.
* Poster-making workshops at primary schools, encouraging children to engage with human-animal conflict information and synthesise it into informative and persuasive posters.​
