OMCAR-Awareness Programs on Marine Conservation in Schools along the Coast of Palk Bay
Schools are where young generations of the local community can be reached to spread conservation messages.So, OMCAR has been working with Schools through District Eco-Clubs and National Green Corps to organise dugong, seagrass, mangroves and sustainable fishery awareness events. We do so by using LCD Projector or Printed Pictures to explain local endangered species such as the dugongs and their habitat, and how the overlapping of fishing practices affects local biodiversity, the productivity of ecosystems and their flora and fauna.Our school programmes also include drawing and writing competitions about mangroves, seagrass, dugong, turtles, dolphins, climate change and local-level man-made activities.
