Water Conservation Puppet Shows – “Druppels”
Mossel Bay Municipality
About the initiative:A puppet show called “Druppels” (“Droplets”) was rolled out during 2018, with the focal message on water security and the value of water. The star of the puppet show was “Fin”, a soft (toy) shark on a mission to change the negative perception that people have about sharks, and how this perception is contributing to their alarming decline in numbers. Through the puppet shows the children were taught that sharks are not the monsters that society and the media portray them to be, but that they are intelligent and special animals that have a very important role to play in ocean ecosystems.
Activities undertaken and deliverables:
- Creative educational puppet shows brought to 15 primary schools and more than 1,300 learners
