Our planet as it once began has been constantly undergoing changes. The only difference between the changes taking place in the last few centuries and those before that is that now these changes are instigated by man’s actions.
The students know one thing like a gospel truth: life cannot exist without oxygen. It was time to however introduce them to other atmospheric gases playing equally significant roles in the upkeep of our planet.
After our video ‘Ahoy, Third Pole E-Base’, the students at the Third Pole E-BAse have very graciously made a video to introduce our students at the E-Base in Pench to their E-Base.
It is wonderful to see students up in the Himlayas interacting with students from central India through their respective E-Bases!
Here’s the video created by the students of Mahabodhi school where the send their love and greetings to the ones in Pench.
Here’s to many more of such virtual interactions!
The third E-Base in the world is incidentally set up, once again, in India. It’s time we connect the two! Thank you so much Robert Swan for this very personal message all the way from Ladakh to us, here at Conservation Wildlands.
There’s a whole lot of work to be done and we’re right behind you!
The third E-Base of the World, the Third Pole E-Base is now live! We would like to congratulate our friends up in Leh who managed to bring solar energy to the ‘Roof of the World‘
Shanti works as a cleaner at the Pench Tiger Reserve Interpretation Centre. When we first began conducting workshops at the E-Base, both her children who study in Khavasa School attended them.
Busy with her own work, Shanti would pass us by at the E-Base or outside at the Turia Gate doing activities with the students. Perhaps, that’s when her curiosity arose and she started taking interest in what we had to offer. Never having completed her education, the workshops at the E-base captured her attention and soon later, we found Shanti standing at a distance listening and watching intently while we conducted workshops.
Through this workshop, the students learnt about the wonders of a tree. They learnt about the function of chlorophyll, and with a simple experiment using ink and carnations, they got a deeper understanding of the capillary movement in plants. By counting the rings on the bark of a tree, the students learnt how to estimate the age of a tree.
