Mr Harry Hanson, the NCF Wetland Project Officer, spoke at a one-day workshop for school conservation clubs and staff of wetlands sector on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 in Dagona, Bade Local Government Area, Yobe State.

The workshop is on birds’ conservation and environmental education.

“The goals of the education programme are to provide every person with opportunities to acquire knowledge, values, attitude, commitment, skills needed to protect and improve the environment,’’ Hanson said.

He urged participants to ensure they incorporate birds, especially vulture conservation and protection in their club activities through film, talk shows, drawings, paintings and birds watching.
