Easter Weekend Outreach builds awareness

The Easter Weekend served as a useful platform for outreach activities in public awareness at the Nariva Swamp.  Teams engaged in fire patrols from the Forestry Division and local community-based organisations took the opportunity to meet with persons who were visiting the coastal region and Jagruma River areas to share information on the value of this protected area.  Through the support of the Environmental Management Authority, garbage bags were supplied to visitors from the ICare programme to assist in disposal of plastic containers.  Brief reports on the exercise have been provided by the Forestry Division and the Biche Environmental Action Group.  Enjoy reading and learning about this initiative.
