“Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

What parent is not panicked about the type of world that their children are growing up in, the inherent risks and dangers are terrifying?  Exposure to drugs, early pregnancies are just a few of the very real challenges that children and parents of today face.

Children experience peer pressure, bullying and violent crime or the potential for it on a daily basis.

VulPro’s Kid’s Club provides children with a safe, healthy and fun environment in which to enjoy and learn from nature; the kind of exposure that their parents enjoyed growing up in a simpler, slower moving world, where children could be, simply children.  Most children have an instinctive love of animals, The Griffons help nurture and develop this.  All of these factors develop a child’s core values, education, personal and emotional development as well as allowing them to have fun, as children need to enjoy being children.

The Griffons are children and young adults of school going age (primary and high school). They are people who love nature, animals and the outdoors.

The Griffons get to learn about nature and what is happening in our environment. They learn about the problems that our modern living and technology creates for our wildlife.

Members are exposed to new opportunities for careers and training, through exposure to our wildlife.

It is not only our charismatic rhino that is terribly endangered, our entertaining vultures are too.

The members enjoy the freedom of VulPro’s open space and safety, unlike the caution we all show in towns and cities.

This is a club for every child.
