Young people have always been a huge part of Wild Mob. We believe that educating and inspiring the next generation is crucial to safeguarding our environment for generations to come.

Through our Classroom Program, we provide environmental education opportunities to Aussie schools. These programs turn theory into practice, getting kids on the ground at actual conservation sites, There, they develop practical skills and experience first-hand the challenges and rewards of conservation biology.

The Youth Ambassadors Program

Our Youth Ambassadors Program is the next step in this education evolution. Our vision is help grow a group of young people across Australia to be the next leaders in nature conservation.

The Program engages and empowers young people in taking direct action to protect critically endangered ecosystems. Each new project sees our Ambassadors identify an environmental problem in their area and develop a measurable, achievable, sustainable solution to help solve it.

The Wild Mob team is there to help every step of the way, providing guidance and mentorship, teaching necessary practical skills and assisting in fundraising and logistics planning. But ultimately, it’s the kids turn to drive the change.

We’d like to give special mention to Kalindi Brennan, an incredible teacher, mentor and Wild Mob supporter. This Program wouldn’t have got of the ground without her unwavering commitment and passion. Kalindi continues to work closely with our Youth Ambassadors to help them achieve their goals. Thank you!

Wild Mob's Youth Ambassadors

I feel very privileged and honoured to be a part of Wild Mob’s Youth Ambassador program. I have been passionate about ocean conservation my whole life, constantly searching for ways I can further help the oceans recover from the mess that humans have made. Collaborating with Wild Mob has ticked all the boxes for me. The work that we are doing with Wild Mob feels real and authentic; like we are actually making a positive difference to our planet and having a heap of fun at the same time!

Briody, Age 18

It’s so incredible to be a part of the marine debris clean-up project in the Great Barrier Reef with the Wild Mob Youth Ambassadors. Being able to go out on a Wild Mob expedition and seeing the conservation efforts first-hand was truly inspiring. I’m super excited to continue learning more about how to protect critically endangered ecosystems and using my skills in film and media to showcase and raise awareness for our large projects and campaigns. The whole Wild Mob team is so knowledgeable and eager to share their experience and passion. I’m so grateful for all their support and generosity.

Zali, Age 17

Ever since my first experience with Wild Mob during a conservation expedition to Norfolk, my drive to nurture various environments has grown significantly. Being able to have the opportunities of immersing oneself in various cultures, communities and biodiversity hotspots, has made a profound impact on my sense of connection to the world around me. Working with Wild Mob has shown me that I am capable of achieving more than I first ever imagined and how my various capabilities and skills can go towards a cause greater than myself, making an immense, positive impact.

Olivia, Age 17

Working with Wild Mob as a Youth Ambassador has provided me with an amazing opportunity to make a difference in the world. The project leaders are awesome to work with and they have a wealth of knowledge that they are more than happy to share with us. They go out of their way to ensure we get everything out of the experience. Going on a Wild Mob expedition feels like an exciting and achievable way to make an impact and effect change in the world.
