Programmes: School and Community Conservation Education Programmes - the Society is committed to reaching out to people wherever they are to educate them on environmental and wildlife issues. It therefore carries out regular visits to schools and communities using talks, film and slide shows, symposia, durbars and campaigns to get conservation messages across to people.

Training - the Society organizes a series of courses, training workshops and camps, particularly for wildlife club members and leaders as well as wildlife managers from within and outside Ghana.

The training programmes are a conscious effort to create, develop and sustain the interest, love and concern for the environment and wildlife and to build a network of wildlife management expertise within Ghana.
