Save The Elephants Education Program
Living in Harmony with Elephants (LIHWE) is a four-part manual developed by Save the Elephants in collaboaration with Disney’s Animal Kingdom that teaches students conservation education with the aims to future wildlife ambassadors. Since it’s inception in 2012, LIHWE has reached out to over 500 students within the Samburu Isiolo Conservation Area (SICA). LIHWE is one of Save The Elephants (STE) Education Program’s approaches that introduce young minds into the world of elephants, delighting them in the species’ intelligence and diversity, and we remain indebted to Disney’s Animal Kingdom educators for all the help they provided to develop this manual. The first lesson equips students with knowledge on elephant ecology, exploring the species physiology, social interaction and its role in modifying the savannah. Next, learners are introduced to the importance of and threats to elephant habitats. The third lesson teaches learners how to protect themselves, their livestock, manyattas from elephants and while at it, securing a future for elephants and other wildlife.
