"We will conserve only what we love, We love only what we know, we know only what we are taught" Baba Dioum

"The protection of wild animals can be done only by knowing the species, it is therefore our role to transmit the necessary knowledge on how to protect and preserve our  extraordinary animal heritage to ba able to transmit it to our children in particular for some of the most endangered species. Our education content enlight the dangers faced by animals in their natural environment, their roles in food chainstheir amazing behaviour and physical charcateristic, or even on the testimony about evolution they are giving to us !"

Laëtitia Lassalle, in charge of the education department
