Wildlife Clubs to be revived in schools in Volta Region

Wildlife clubs are to be revived in schools in the Volta Region to reverse the waning interest of young people in issues of the environment and nature, Mr Evans Dorvlo, Volta Regional Coordinator of the Ghana Wild Society have said.

Speaking at a meeting with representatives of selected schools in Ho on Thursday, he said  pupils these days appeared completely unaware of the importance of nature on their lives and so by their actions and inactions abuse it (nature).

Mr Dorvlo said club activities including interactions, excursions, active involvement in conservation activities and other exposures would widen the horizons of members and even help them in tackling some examination questions.

He said clubs could also go into income generating activities such as beekeeping, snail farming and woodlot cultivation.

Mr Francis Djim, who represented Sonrise Junior High School (JHS) in Ho, said it was important that teachers engaged pupils and students in evaluating their activities, including travels, to give them thorough grounding in nature and environmental issues.
