Why education?

Educating young people has always been a huge part of what we do at Wild Mob.

We believe that inspiring the next generation is crucial to safeguarding our environment for generations to come. Because it’s young people who can drive lasting and sustainable change; who will become the next ambassadors in environmental conservation.

What are we doing?

CONSERVATION: Our education programs get school and university students on the ground at actual conservation sites. There, they contribute to real world conservation, develop practical skills and experience the challenges and rewards of environmental biology.

CULTURE: We work directly with young people to develop and improve motivation, individual responsibility, cultural understanding and a deep connection with nature.

COMMUNITY: We work with a network of schools, universities, environmental organisations and volunteers to help young people build the knowledge and skills neeeded for environmental management.

COMMERCE: Our kids contribute to measurable environmental outcomes in marine ecosystems across Australia and the pacific. Every marine classroom provides more resources to drive conservation.

What the kids are saying

This journey has taught me that it is possible for me to make a difference in helping save the environment. I hope to continue this journey as I live my life to fullest in sustaining a cleaner world.

FlynnAge 16

As a teenager, I don't often have the responsibilities Wild Mob has given me. Having this opportunity has helped me to grow as a person, feel more motivated towards conserving ecosystems and encourage others to do so as well.

CharlieAge 16

Being actively involved in Wild Mob conservation adventures is an amazing experience for a young person. Seeing firsthand what a small group of people can do to make a positive change for the environment and community, is inspiring.

JackAge 17

Being involved in a Wild Mob conservation expedition has helped me develop a different perspective of our natural environment and how important it is to take care of it.

My experience with Wild Mob was a wonderful and an educational adventure that I will remember for a lifetime.
