What is Environmental Education?
This video goes through definitions for Environmental Education. Environmental Education has many definitions depending on the source. It is clear that it has elements of outdoor education, outdoor play, outdoor recreation, conservation, and may include learning about: the environment, nature, natural resources, wildlife,animals, plants, fish, outdoor recreation, and the global environment. This type of experiential learning is also linked to good teaching, parenting, family, and family relationships. Parents and teachers are taking more interest in using outdoor activities in nature to teach about conservation and the environment. Outdoor activities spent exploring the environment helps to build a better symbiotic relationship between nature and humans. Children and adults learn a great deal from their outdoor adventures. Each outdoor adventure helps to build critical thinking skills and leads to healthy lifestyles and scientific discovery. There are numerous outdoor jobs and opportunities for entrepreneurs who have an interest in environmental education. Wildlife refuges, wildlife reserves, and wildlife preserves can be turned into outdoor classrooms. There is a great deal to learn from nature methods. Natural curiosity sparks interest in natural science and learning such as biological science, earth science, nature materials, nature biotechnology, nature immunology, nature physics, nature nanotechnology, scientific exploration, and scientific breakthroughs. The travel and tourism industry also can benefit from environmental education. Ecotourism, nature tourism, zoo travel, and nature tour, are enourmous fast growing industries. There is a great number of people that will travel to see exotic animals, endangered animals, birds, mammals, fish and migrations. People want to learn more about wildlife and teach their children. There is also a growing interest in nature pictures and nature photography

CHNEP Conservation Lands: Sustainability in Environmental Education
The CHNEP Conservation Lands Workshop was held on September 26, 2013, to help its partners in their efforts to protect the natural environment of Florida from Venice to Bonita Springs to Winter Haven and fulfill the CHNEP management plan. Thanks to Charlotte County for donating the use of the facility and to Mosaic for sponsoring the conference. Conservation lands increase the quality of life and enhance the tax base of the adjacent private lands. They provide essential habitat for native species, allow water to flow naturally on the surface and to aquifers — cleansing and storing water as it moves — and they protect human development as the mangroves did during Hurricane Charley. Land can be conserved through purchase and by conservation easements by citizens, jurisdictions, agencies, land trusts and others. Presentations from this workshop are available. Visit www.CHNEP.org/ConservationLands.html to learn more and see presentations not posted on YouTube because of audio problems. Sustainability in Environmental Education: Low Maintenance Programs with Big Impacts Melissa Nell, Manager, Volunteer & Education Division, Manatee County Natural Resources Department .

Community based environmental education in Mongolia
Mrs Tungalagtuya Khuukhenduu Community-based environmental education in Mongolia Over the past few decades, Mongolia's wildlife and cultural resources have declined in the face of massive natural and cultural resource extraction activities, inadequate management, poor conservation education resources and programming, and very minimal law enforcement. Traditionally, people in Mongolia hold conservation and environmental knowledge, yet they lack the means to effectively manage and protect their natural resources. Little natural or cultural resources management currently occurs in Mongolia outside of federally managed protected areas. In recent years there has been a shift in the way Mongolians view their land and a need to conserve natural resources, restore traditional customs and apply community cooperative management. Nomadic Nature Conservation, a Mongolian NGO, grew out of the recognition of a conservation need among communities throughout Mongolia. The organization brings ecological education to Mongolia's rural schools and communities through the Nomadic Nature Trunk Program. The trunk program is an innovative mobile educational program that brings activity-based instruction in natural sciences and the environmental conservation to Mongolian schools and indigenous communities, building the capacity of these communities to engage in wildlife conservation. In an ever-changing landscape in rural Mongolia, Nomadic Nature Conservation works to cultivate a culture of conservation-minded Mongolians that will create a better place in which to live for future generations.

Kalabia Environmental Education Program in Raja Ampat, West Papua
The Kalabia is a unique, inspired interactive environmental education program that visits all the villages in Raja Ampat in the Bird's Head Seascape of West Papua, Indonesia, inspiring behaviour change for conservation. Located in the global epicenter of marine biodiversity and with approximately ten times the coral diversity of the entire Caribbean Sea, Raja Ampat is undeniably one of the top global priorities for marine conservation. Though its reefs and associated fish stocks are still in generally excellent health, there is an urgent need to increase the awareness of the people of Raja Ampat of the importance of conserving their reefs and the growing litany of threats facing them (from global climate change to unsustainable development to overfishing by foreign fleets) in order that they become even more passionate stewards of these reefs. Unfortunately, with over 100 remote villages scattered over just as many islands, providing outreach to these communities is a serious logistical challenge. The solution? The brightly painted 34m (115 foot) MV Kalabia floating environmental education center, which travels from village to village spending 3-4 days in each, educating schoolchildren through an innovative experiential curriculum which is creating an army of young marine conservationists. The Kalabia travels to all the villages in Raja Ampat providing hands-on, interactive environmental educational programming in their mission to promote conservation of these iconic waters. Yayasan Kalabia Indonesia, YaKIn, is a new local Papuan conservation NGO developed together by charismatic local leaders and Conservation International Indonesia (CII), to manage and deliver the highly successful program. CII founded the Kalabia program in 2007, together with The Nature Conservancy, and other conservation partners in the region. YaKIn has been at the reins since the end of 2012, but continues to receive strong support from Conservation International and Angela Beer. Building upon a strong foundation of science, partnership and field demonstration, Conservation International empowers societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity.

MEXICO The history of ENVIRONMENTAL policy in Mexico started in the 1940s with the enactment of the Law of Conservation of Soil and Water (in Spanish: Ley de Conservación de Suelo y Agua). Three decades later, at the beginning of the 1970s, the Law to Prevent and Control ENVIRONMENTAL Pollution was created (LEY PARA PREVENIR Y CONTROLAR LA CONTAMINACIÓN AMBIENTAL). WITH OVER 200,000 DIFFERENT SPECIES, MEXICO IS HOME TO 10--12% OF THE WORLD'S BIODIVERSITY, RANKING FIRST IN REPTILE BIODIVERSITY AND SECOND IN MAMMALS ONE ESTIMATE INDICATES THAT OVER 50% OF ALL ANIMAL AND PLANT SPECIES LIVE IN MEXICO. In 1972 was the first direct response from the federal government to address eminent health effects from ENVIRONMENTAL issues. It established the administrative organization of the Secretariat for the Improvement of the ENVIRONMENT (Subsecretaría para el Mejoramiento del Ambiente) in the Department of Health and Welfare. The axolotl is an endemic species from the central part of Mexico The Secretariat of ENVIRONMENT and Natural Resources (Secretaría del Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, SEMARNAT is Mexico's ENVIRONMENT ministry. The Ministry is responsible for addressing the following issues: • Promote the PROTECTION, restoration and conservation of ecosystems, natural resources, goods and ENVIRONMENTAL services, and to facilitate their use and sustainable development. • Develop and implement a national policy on natural resources • Promote ENVIRONMENTAL management within the national territory, in coordination with all levels of government and the private sector. • Evaluate and provide determination to the ENVIRONMENTAL impact statements for development projects and prevention of ecological damage • Implement national policies on climate change and PROTECTION of the ozone layer. • Direct work and studies on national meteorological, climatological, hydrological, and geohydrological systems, and participate in international conventions on these subjects. • Regulate and monitor the conservation of WATERWAYS In November 2000 there were 127 protected areas; currently there are 174, covering an area of 25,384,818 hectares, increasing federally protected areas from 8.6% to 12.85% its land area. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION is a practice of protecting the natural ENVIRONMENT on individual, organizational or governmental levels, for the benefit of both the natural ENVIRONMENT and humans. Due to the pressures of population and technology, the biophysical ENVIRONMENT is being degraded, sometimes permanently. This has been recognized, and governments have begun placing restraints on activities that cause ENVIRONMENTAL degradation. Since the 1960s, activity of ENVIRONMENTAL movements has created awareness of the various ENVIRONMENTAL issues. There is no agreement on the extent of the ENVIRONMENTAL impact of human activity, and PROTECTION measures are occasionally criticized. Academic institutions now offer courses, such as ENVIRONMENTAL studies, ENVIRONMENTAL management and ENVIRONMENTAL engineering, that teach the history and methods of ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION. PROTECTION of the ENVIRONMENT is needed due to various human activities. Waste production, air pollution, and loss of biodiversity (resulting from the introduction of invasive species and species extinction) are some of the issues related to ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION is influenced by three interwoven factors: ENVIRONMENTAL legislation, ethics and education. Each of these factors plays its part in influencing national-level ENVIRONMENTAL decisions and personal-level ENVIRONMENTAL values and behaviors. For ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION to become a reality, it is important for societies to develop each of these areas that, together, will inform and drive ENVIRONMENTAL decisions International ENVIRONMENTAL agreements
