Should conservation education and awareness be included in the syllabus? Personally, I think it should be included. I remember doing a short survey on the same. It was a survey carried out by an environment organization. Am yet to know what transpired after we gave our thoughts.
At what point were you exposed to the conservation education? How was it done? Did you get an opportunity to understand its importance. Or was done just as a by the way.
As much I grew up loving nature and animals to be specific. It was a passion nurtured by the animals I was exposed to. My dad loves animals and he did much of my introduction to this animal world. I always accompanied him. My free time was dedicated to animals.
I guess this contributed to my few friends while growing up. I always find comfort spending time with animals. I still do. They have an effect on my moods and motivation. I could be having a terrible day but a five minutes with animals, fixed everything. At least that’s how I feel.
It was in high school that I really got an exposure to wildlife and nature. This was through Wildlife Club that I was lucky to chair for two years. We didn’t have much activities as I wanted. We mainly planted trees and kept rabbits at some point. Materials were limited and this was a major limitation.
Most of the students joined the club for wrong reasons. They thought it was a ticket to filed trips. Hence the meaning of the club was never fully enjoyed. Our club matron did her best to give us the best. But I hope we could have done much.
