The future of our planet greatly depends on how we pass on knowledge to young generations who are going to be responsible for the planet when we pass on. So conservation education must be empowered and funded well to ensure communities build information banks about biodiversity. 

One activity we hold is Conversation Conversations with kids. This is an example of such conversation:

Hey kids! Let’s learn about reptiles and amphibians, two groups of cool animals. Here are some easy-to-understand characteristics of each:

Reptiles:

1. Scaly Skin: Reptiles have dry, scaly skin that helps protect them.

2. Cold-Blooded: They are cold-blooded, which means they need to bask in the sun to get warm.

3. Lay Eggs: Most reptiles lay eggs, although some give birth to live young.

4. Lungs for Breathing: Reptiles use lungs to breathe air.

5. Types: Examples include snakes, lizards, turtles, and crocodiles.

Amphibians:

1. Moist Skin: Amphibians have smooth, moist skin that helps them breathe and stay hydrated.

2. Cold-Blooded: Like reptiles, amphibians are cold-blooded and need to find warm places to stay warm.

3. Dual Life: Amphibians often start life in water as larvae (like tadpoles) and then move to land as they grow up.

4. Lay Eggs in Water: Most amphibians lay their eggs in water, which hatch into larvae that live in water before becoming adults.

5. Types: Examples include frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts.

Fun Facts:

Reptiles: Did you know that some lizards can change colors to blend in with their surroundings?

Amphibians: Frogs can jump up to 20 times their own body length!

By knowing these characteristics, you can easily tell the difference between reptiles and amphibians. Both groups are fascinating and important to our ecosystems. Keep learning and exploring the amazing world of animals!
