The mission of the JEACs is to inspire respect for, and stewardship of, the natural world, while providing a quality visitor experience.



We are an international group of Junior Environmentalists and Conservationists who long to save our planet from destruction. We will work towards this by:

  • educating ourselves on the importance and necessity:

    • of protecting all wildlife - especially endangered species - and the techniques used by conservation groups all over the world to reach this goal;

    • of preventing our global environment from further damage, and finding out how we can participate in this endeavour;
  • creating awareness of these issues among our peers and by sharing knowledge with them, encouraging more volunteers to join our group;
  • becoming members of zoos, conservations and environmental groups in our region, actively participating in events organized by them and, through donations and fundraising efforts, contributing towards their work.


You are UNIQUE! This means YOU have special gifts to help change the world. Talk to your parents about ways in which you can recycle or conserve at home. Ask the wonderful folk at zoos and conservations close to you how you can get involved in all kinds of fun and educational activities. Get your friends and neighbours involved. Look up websites for zoos and wildlife conservations, and check out what’s going on around the world!
