Conserving nature – it’s not just about the animals...

When people think of conservation, they often think that it is about saving species. Whilst this is partly true, conservation is actually much more than that. Conservation involves efforts that protect and sustain everything from the genes that make up a species, to the habitats in which they...

In these resources, students explore the factors affecting communities and their wildlife when development takes place, in this case the building of a hydroelectric power station in Uganda. Students will explore the positive and negative impacts of dams to write a balanced argument (KS3 and 4), look at conflict mediation through role play (KS3), and develop their own case study (KS4 Geography).
KS3 - Dam Dilemma
KS3 - Development Decisions
KS4 - Conservation Conundrum
KS4 - Uganda Case Study
In this activity students look at the positive and negative impacts of building more hydroelectric dams on Ugandan rivers. They use this information to write a balanced argument.
In this activity, students gain an insight into the work of researchers at The University of Oxford's Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) and model the conflict between development and the needs of people and the environment. They role play a stakeholder meeting between local villagers and developers, mediated by conservation researchers, to see if they can come to an agreement on proposed development ideas.
In this activity students look at the positive and negative impacts of building more hydroelectric dams on Ugandan rivers. They use this information to write a balanced argument.
In this activity students use a range of resources to build a case study about the positive and negative impacts of this scheme.
