Project 2 - Education

HAWCS aim is to prevent the trade in endangered species and provide environmental education pertaining to sustainable agricultural practices and to highlight the importance of the bio-diversity contained within their country.

Sumatra is accustomed to seeing animals used for entertainment such as those seen in street circuses and the illegal hunting that occurs is not only caused by unawareness but also born out of necessity for an income. Due to the intrusion of wildlife onto farmland, some species are regarded as ‘pests’ and are destroyed. In order to protect the wildlife and their environment it is essential to create public awareness, educational programmes targeting school children and to show that alternative methods can be employed, for example the creation of animal corridors to by-pass agricultural and residential land.

Sumatran Zoos are generally privately owned and currently do not have any conservation, breeding or educational programmes. The animals lack enrichment, thus quality of life and are suffering purely as exhibits in the name of ‘entertainment’, unlike the Zoos situated in the U.K which now have extensive breeding programmes, conservation status and educational facilities for visitors. The Zoos situated in the U.K receive audited inspections and must comply with standards.

School Based Education in the UK HAWCS has developed a programme of lectures to be delivered to secondary schools on the subject of habitat and wildlife conservation, using the Islands of Sumatra and Borneo as case studies to create and widen awareness of the issues and threats to habitats and wildlife.
