Mongabay.org’s Education Initiative was founded to provide teachers and students with an opportunity to collaborate and learn about current environmental and social justice issues. Our education programs empower teachers, parents and, most importantly, students to engage in real-world learning. Mongabay.org’s goals are to inculcate students’ intellectual growth through the development of critical thinking, analytical reasoning skills, and scientific literacy, as well as foster an informed citizenry where students feel empowered to mobilize themselves for positive, productive change about the challenging issues we face in the 21st century.
