Recently, we shared news about a project to evaluate LCF’s three-day student conservation education trips in Madagascar. Our post, “Master’s student presents LCF Madagascar Program at EFP-PSGB,” described findings by Oxford Brookes University Master’s student Kylie Sorenson after assessing students’ knowledge of lemurs before and after overnight trips to Marojejy National Park.
Observing lemurs in their natural habitat had a strong impact on the students. Many children developed more pro-conservation attitudes as a result of these three day, two night excursions into the rainforest. As the trip came to an end, students gathered to talk with Kylie about their experiences and thoughts on forest conservation. As part of her project, Kylie captured beautiful video footage of the students’ candid reactions and comments about the impact of their trip.
At our 2nd Annual World Lemur Festival on October 12 in Sarasota, we screened these films for the first time and are pleased to share them with you now.
