Why should kids join this program?
Photography is transforming the way we communicate in the digital age. It is not just an art form but a communication tool that the future environmentalists, scientists, and engineers must possess. In this course, kids will go through an extensive learning journey with a wildlife film maker, a travel photographer, and a wildlife researcher.

What parents had to say about our previous programs
Mango education... I felt so proud when I saw the article for photography exhibition in the Metro newspaper as picture clicked by my daughter was there. I don’t know if it is possible to convey in words the sense of gratitude I feel when you selected her as an official photographer to cover an event. You have inspired my daughter to achieve at a level higher than I thought possible. Your guidance and encouragement during the photography sessions was invaluable — without it Alifiya surely wouldn't have been able to achieve her passion. Special Thanks to Aasif Anna and Priyanka mam. For that I am forever thankful.
Rohan had never held a camera in his life. At Mango Education he learnt to see the world through the lens, to fix his subject within a frame and freeze them for time! He explored life and the beautiful colours of nature up close as he had never done before! From the fluttering butterflies of TNAU to the exotic birds of Nigiris’ Biosphere, Mango Education opened the doors to a new world to explore! It has been an enriching experience for him. I would recommend this to children who have varied interests. The initiative by the “bunch of engineers turned educators” as Mango Education team calls themselves has to be truly appreciated.
It was wonderful to watch the children learn not only basics and technicalities behind good photography, but also the importance of wildlife/Nature conservation, ethics in Wildlife photography and lots more in the "Photography workshop" by the Mango Education and Zoo outreach !!! The final photo exhibition was a nice boost to them ... Wonderful work Team Mango and Zoo outreach.
An understanding of the natural world and what’s in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfilment.
