Through generous funding from Nature’s Path and the Tico Torres Foundation, ACT created Junior Park Ranger manuals in partnership with our trained park guards. These booklets teach children about local flora and fauna, as well as basic principles of conservation. While these manuals were originally distributed to children in remote rainforest communities, Suriname’s Ministry of Education recently decided to include the resource as part of its new nationwide Environmental Education Box project. Now, children in all of Suriname’s 360 primary schools will also benefit from the manuals.
