Environmental education in Germany
Presentation for adults
Our 45-minute presentations give information on the life of great apes and how they are endangered. We focus on destruction of the rainforest for palm oil plantations, present current research findings and discuss prospects for sustainability …
We take preschool children on an adventure tour around the world. Our orangutan hand puppet Ginting helps them discover the great apes and their natural habitats. We also discuss endangerment of the great apes. Zoo excursions allow the young adventurers to apply their newly-acquired knowledge.
Project days and project weeks at school
Under the title Rainforest for breakfast?! we offer school children a day or a week program on how our consumer choices contribute to the destruction of the habitat of the great apes. Besides basic information on chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos, and chimpanzees, palm oil is a central topic here.
Information stands make our organization more visible to the public, giving information about our work and explaining the endangerment of orangutans and the loss of their habitat.
