Appreciating our beautiful biodiverse environment!

With the end of the year fast approaching, we have been busy with teacher workshops and school groups at both NaDEET Centre and at the Urban Centre in Swakopmund. Our latest group at the Centre on NamibRand was the Grade 6 class from Private School Swakopmund this past week. With a little rain on the last day and lots of educational, fun activities, the students are inspired to act for SDG 13 ‘Climate Action’.
