Environmental conservation has become the need of the hour and it won't be an exaggeration to point out that it has become essential to take stringent steps to raise awareness about eco-projects
One organisation that has been lending a helping hand for the same with insightful field research and environment conservation projects, is the 130-year-old the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS), which will complete 20 years of nature education activities on September 21.
As part of its celebrations, a day-long Conservation Education Seminar on Promotion of Environmental Literacy in Maharashtra has been organised in collaboration with the United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF). This seminar aims to document and estimate environmental literacy in our state by measuring the target reached by its participants.
An interesting “Walk in the Forest” at dusk should be a fitting end to the day.
