PROGRAMS WITH PURPOSE
At Reptile Encounters our values are: Have Fun, Create Memories and Make a Difference. Through our partnership with B1G1 we are able to do exactly that. B1G1 takes care of the hard work by vetting projects around the world in order to create the greatest impact.
We choose projects that make the absolute greatest possible impact to communities and the environment around the globe. And now, for every single school incursion booked we will donate to B1G1, so together we can make a difference to our world.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We select B1G1 projects that are focused on protecting and preserving the environment and improving access to education, either locally here in Australia or around the world. We believe education is crucial to the future of the planet, as it leads to the creativity and critical thinking vital for people of all ages to live life to their fullest potential and live in a sustainable future.
At Reptile Encounters not only are we passionate about protecting the environment, but we also aim to inspire our audiences to do their part as well. We are super-excited to donate to and be involved with environmental and educational projects that will help keep planet Earth green and healthy.
2000 PROGRAMS =
Our big, hairy, audacious goal for 2023 is to provide 2000 awesome wildlife incursions into schools around Melbourne – and for every single incursion we do, we will choose a project to donate to which aligns with our goals.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
If you haven’t heard of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, they are a set of wide-ranging and ambitious global objectives that aim to transform our planet for the better. As you may have guessed, they are mainly focused on social, economic and environmental areas and they push, pull and guide the planet towards developing in a sustainable way.
Both eyes are on not only the next generation, but the next ten generations. Included in the goals are bold aspirations to address poverty, hunger, health, education, global warming, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, urbanization, environment and social justice.
