Students going on the Namibia July 2010 Expedition had an extra treat on Sunday 7th March at the World Heritage Foundation (WHF) in Kent. WHF is a specialist conservation charity focused on working with carnivore species, mainly big cats such as tigers and leopards.

This was an opportunity for the students to learn about various breeding and endangered species programmes for leopards and tigers. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and encouraged the students to check out the website on their return as there is a wealth of information available. A fantastic day was had by all and students returned with some spectacular photographs as they were allowed to get really close to the animals.

Thirteen sixth form students begin their exciting adventure to Namibia on 19th July where they will have an introduction to the wildlife and environment of Namibia. During their stay they will study cheetahs at the world-renowned Cheetah Conservation Fund, visit Etosha National Park to study mammals’ behaviour and adaptations, explore the Namib Desert and visit a Township in Swakopmund.
