Geographers Enjoy Virtual Field Trip To Africa

WWF Land for Life virtual field trip

Year 7 and 8 Geography students explored the geography and ecosystems of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania on a virtual field trip run by WWF, the world’s leading independent conservation organisation.

They were able to discover the interdependence of natural systems and recognise the consequences that occur when connections are altered or damaged by humans. Students also learned about human-wildlife conflict in the region and discovered how WWF’s Land for Life project is providing real-world conservation solutions in this landscape.

The virtual trip experience aimed to try and make sure that students could:

- Locate southern Kenya and northern Tanzania on the world map and identify some of its key geographical features.

- Recall key wildlife, food chains and current threats to nature in Kenya and Tanzania.

- Understand the interdependence of natural systems and recognise the consequences that occur when connections are altered or damaged by humans.

- Recall real-world wildlife conservation solutions in Kenya and Tanzania.

Mr Ritson, Geography teacher at St Paul’s Catholic School, said: “The students were great and this opportunity allowed them to engage with the curriculum in a different and interactive way.”
