Conservation Education Resource Centre (CERC)

The Conservation Education program not only focusing on teacher training; but has also acknowledged the need for teachers in terms of up to date information and teaching resources through the inception of Conservation Education Resource Center (CERC). The center has initially been established at the RCF office in Goroka, the capital of Eastern Highlands province to cater for teachers and their school groups. Due to the expansion of the teacher and tertiary training program to other provinces, namely Simbu, Jiwaka and Morobe Provinces; there are three satellite CERCs set up to service teachers in the provinces. The CERC has a diverse collection of environmentally based materials including books, videos, magazines and student activity books. It is also much more than a library. Teachers are encouraged to bring students to the center for excursion, activities, talks, video show etc.. to enhance their learning
