PACE for UK schools

Homer Green - Year 7 pupils

Tusk and Siren Conservation Education have worked with teachers and Development Education experts to create educational resources for UK schools, based on the PACE packs used in conservation education programmes across Africa.

The resources are available in return for a donation to Tusk, which goes towards shipping PACE packs to Africa.
