Meeting with Kouprey Express Mobile Educational Unit at the Wildlife Alliance Offices in Phnom Penh
From their website: "Wildlife Alliance launched a national campaign to raise awareness about wildlife conservation and habitat preservation utilizing . . . a mobile environmental education project for Cambodia’s youth about wildlife conservation and habitat preservation. Named for the Kouprey, a species of ox believed to be extinct in the wild, the Kouprey Express is a bus full of engaging and interactive educational materials that travels throughout the Southern Cardamoms visiting schools and rural villages teaching environmental protection and management. . . . Beginning in 2008, the Kouprey Express adopted a targeted strategy to maximize impact by distributing reusable environmental education curricula and materials, and by training teachers in Koh Kong province how to use these curricula."
