The Jozi Carnivores Schools Programme uses carnivorous plants to teach students about evolution, conservation and the importance of rain water harvesting. During the programme, students learn about the amazing world of carnivorous plants and why they have had to evolve into mighty hunters in order to survive. School visits to our facilities in Kyalami include a walk-about through the sun-tunnels to see where the plants grow; dissecting the plants under powerful magnifying glasses and identifying the various trapping mechanisms different species have developed to catch their prey; Students also get to feed the plants with freshly caught bugs and learn how to care for carnivorous plants. The Jozi Carnivores School Programme is a perfect antidote to the stressful times our learners are facing in the times of the pandemic and has been used by to top educational institutions including Rodean, Crawford, St Marys and Bella Vista. We tailor the programme to suit the ages of the learners from pre-school through to Grade 10.
