Overview

Recommended for Age Group 10 - 16 years.

Most people associate Goa with beaches, but there lies an unexplored sphere of biodiversity at the heart of Goa as well. The Western Ghats are home to a variety of birds and animals conserved in many Goan sanctuaries. The pockets of greenery, interspersed with elements of local culture make Goa a fascinating place to visit for your introduction to nature. Young Rangers Program focuses on combining experiential learning with fun, as we encourage students to explore, learn, and conserve. 

Come, explore a whole new Goa with us this summer!
