The National Park Service Conservation education unit is charged with the responsibility of influencing people’s attitudes, emotions, knowledge, and behaviours about wildlife and wild places. This is done through the efforts of skilled educators and Park interpreters, who use a variety of techniques, methods, and assessments to reconnect people with the natural world. The Conservation Education section of the National Park Service Website provides the tools to start, expand, or refresh any conservation education program.
The National Park Service over the years have embarked on various programmes and projects aimed at increasing knowledge and support on biodiversity conservation in the support zone communities of the Seven National Parks through rural community talks, video/film show, stakeholders and or town hall community meetings.
Apart from the use and active involvement of school conservation clubs in spreading the conservation message in the catchment areas of the Parks, the National Park Service has continued to extend her gesture in the area of provision of educational materials(exercise books, pen/pencil, text books, furniture and chalk) to facilitate their (school children) emotional and mental development towards serving as vanguards in advocating the course of conservation of biodiversity in school and out of school.
Another very important aspect of conservation education the National Park Service has maintained in her operations is the raising, procurement and distribution of seedlings to schools for ornamental purposes, to check climate change and reduce global warming as well as erosion control measures in the school environment. Inter school quiz competitions (debates, essay writing, drama presentations), and excursions are other programmes that the National Park Service explored through the school conservation clubs to drive home the message of conservation education in the support zone communities.
