A JOURNEY WITH MIGRATORY BIRDS: A LEARNING EVENT FOR THE YOUTH
October 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Society for the Conservation of Philippine Wetlands, Inc (SCPW) will be hosting an event for the Youth dubbed as “A Journey with Migratory Birds: A Learning Event for the Youth” on 05 October 2018. The event is co-organized by the National Geographic – Asia and the East Asian Australasian Flyway (EAAF) Partnership Secretariat. The event has two parts: A Learning Session which will be held at the Summit Hall of the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City and a visit to the Las Piñas-Parañaque Wetland Park at Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA).
The objectives of the activity are:
to increase the awareness of the Youth on the importance of migratory birds and wetlands and how they can help protect them;
to come up with an activity across schools on the conservation of migratory birds;
to understand the importance of the LPPCHEA as a Ramsar Site and potential Flyway Network Site.
The Resource Persons at the event will be coming from Alaska, Myanmar, Australia, and the Philippines to share the story of migratory birds along the EAAF. This will give the Youth a unique opportunity to learn about migratory birds and observe them in their natural habitat and plan actions on how to help protect them. The activity is expected to gather about 100 students from Las Piñas, Parañaque, Manila, and other areas in Metro Manila.
