Community Caravan visits Manzanilla

The first leg of the Community Caravan took the Nariva Swamp public awareness team to the communities of Manzanilla and Plum Road on Tuesday 8th May 2018.  Team members included the Forestry Division, Environmental Management Authority, Brigand Hill Friends of the Environment and the Environmental Policy and Planning Division of the Ministry of Planning.  The Caravan brought residents information and awareness of the assets of this protected area, the threats which currently face its management, the people involved in its conservation and the value of the swamp locally and internationally.  The public awareness exercise continues in the communities of Plum Mitan, Biche, Cuche and Navet over coming days.  Read more about the first leg of the caravan at this link.
