In this article, the authors examine the implementation and success of a mobile conservation education unit targeting primary schools in central Lao PDR (People's Democratic Republic). The mobile unit conducted 3-hour interactive programs for school children focused on the importance of wildlife and biodiversity around the primary schools in rural villages. Qualitative and anecdotal information were gathered during and after each program performance in schools, program offices, and villagers' homes to measure program success. Comparing correct responses between the pre- and posttest results showed a 21% improvement of student posttest scores. Indicators show the Mobile Conservation Education Unit met the program goals and objectives, despite the nature of Lao education and censorship of mass media. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
