As a part of ‘Environmental Education and Public Awareness (EEPA), SATOYAMA UMI project’, Royal Society for Protection of Nature conducted the environmental education activities with the Nature Club and Environmental Studies students from Rameychen Primary School on November 27 and with Bayta Primary School and Phobjikha Central School on November 27-28, 2019.

The three-day event focused on waste management, Black-necked Crane behavior, and origami and also carried out the project experiments from “How safe is your drinking water?” All the activities were from the RSPN publications titled, “Follow that Stream”, “The Environmental Education Guide book” and “Smart Living Tips”.

Last day, the students partook in the “Welcome to Bird Study Tour” activity at Pelela. During the bird watching tour, students were taught the basics of birding like how to identify the birds, parts of birds, etc. More than 15 birds were recorded by students on that day.
