The work of Live & Learn Environmental Education began in 1992 as volunteers, teachers primarily from northern Queensland, Australia provided environmental education programs regarding rainforest and reef conservation to local school children. In 1997, the volunteers assessed their work and realized that biological education only was not leading to better community conservation. With renewed energy, Live & Learn redesigned its efforts to promote environmental, action-focused education in the South Pacific.
