Future generations need guidance to develop into competent adults who can work constructively and collaboratively to improve their communities and society as a whole. A community follows the value and passions of its members and so it is vital that communities boarding natural areas are knowledgeable of the environment and its associated difficulties. They must develop a conservation philosophy and transition into a society that is protective of its natural heritage.​


With a desire to bring about change in the local communities and in an effort to provide a long-term solution in the fight against poaching, Transfrontier Africa created a community based project that would develop a conservation philosophy within the communities surrounding the protected areas by targeting the future leaders of society and providing the necessary skills to make informed decisions and take responsible actions.

The Bush Babies school program is an environmentally based education program currently offered to schools in local communities surrounding the Greater Kruger National Park. Targeting students between the ages of 12 to 17 years old, conservational issues are discussed and incorporated into the existing school curriculum. Conservation based lesson plans have been interlinked into the existing school curriculum, and so all school subjects are focused on through the concept of conservation.​
