Garden Route District Municipality (GRDM) Disaster Management Unit in collaboration with George Local Municipality conducted an educational session about World Nature Conservation Day (28 July) at Mzoxolo Primary School for grade 5 learners.
The main objectives of this campaign were to educate learners about nature conversations. Also, to encourage them to take part in protecting the environment and enhance nature conservation.
During the awareness campaign learners were also taught about the following:
- causes and the impacts of the loss of natural resources;
- health risks associated with loss of natural resources;
- the benefits of healthy nature; and
- solutions to protect the environment such as minimizing pollution, recycling and conserving water.
Sessions like these increase a sense of responsibility, confidence and empower learners to also become active citizens and take collective action to tackle environmental issues
