Conservation Education during the Pandemic Situation

The COVID pandemic has hit Indonesia since March 2020 and has continued until now. This hampered the program at WRC Jogja. One of them is a conservation education program. The program actually focuses on education regarding wildlife conservation, targeting students and the general public. There are several programs, such as Jelajah Alam, bird watching, and school groups, that have stopped following health protocols.

However, we don’t just stop here. We carry out innovative activities in the form of online-based education. We are working together with the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Universitas Brawijaya (FKH UB) to organize a webinar on the conservation of wildlife and their diseases. The activity was held in September, targeting students who were in Kulon Progo. The webinar was presented by speakers from the FKH UB student team and also the WRC Jogja conservation education team with an interactive discussion system through the meeting network application. Several participants were recorded from SMP N 1 Pengasih, SMP N 2 Kokap, SMA IT Abu Bakar, and MTs Darul Ulum and Pramuka Kulon Progo enthusiastically participating in this activity.

The hope is that with this pandemic, the enthusiasm to spread wildlife conservation to future generations will not stop. In addition, the importance of conservation education from an early age needs to be instilled to introduce and cultivate the spirit of wildlife conservation in future generations. If there are colleagues who are interested in knowing about and participating in the conservation education program of WRC Jogja, you can contact us at the address listed on the WRC Jogja website.

During the relocation period, Tojeiro studied animal health management to increase his capacity in the field of animal welfare.
