The Daktari Bush School and Wildlife Orphanage addresses the overcrowded nature of schools in South Africa by providing children with immersive environmental education. The organization provides rural youth with the opportunity to care for orphaned animals, many of which they might not see regularly because of poaching and other human threats.   http://www.daktaribushschool.org/
