The Queen Elizabeth Parks Project supports conservation in both Queen Elizabeth Parks by encouraging Rangers and other Parks Staff to participate in exchange visits and training or mentoring opportunities, as well as donating field equipment, books and other items.
Fundemental to the success of the Project is the belief that wildlife conservation is best served by exploring innovative ways of engaging with and empowering communities.
We visit community groups both in Uganda and the UK, engaging with people and talking about the role of Rangers, cutlural and the local community involvement in wildlife conservation.
In Uganda we support the work of the Queen Elizabeth National Park's community team and seek to support those communities involved in ecotourism initiatives, social enterprises and environmental improvements.
In the UK, we give talks, attend events and support those who wish to become involved in cultrual partnership
We believe that education is the key to successful and sustainable wildlife conservation.
By supporting schools and bringing conservation into the classroom, chidlren in the UK and Uganda understand the importance of their local parks, reserves and the wildlife within them.
The teacher exchange visits and improved communication between schools has created the ultimate opportunity for cultural learning and an excellent basis to develop joint pupil learning experiences.
This is a Project of cultural exchange and mutual support focussed on wildlife conservation: working closely with and empowering local communities, supporting education initiatives, and exchanging ideas and best practice between the staff of the two Queen Elizabeth Parks
