Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Centre in partnership with the Wildlife Clubs of Uganda and support from African Wildlife Foundation and USAID run regional competition among schools. The national theme was “listening to the young voices”, a similar theme adapted at the World Wildlife Day cerebration on 3rd March, 2017 for Uganda.
The event was grassed by Her Excellency Deborah R. Malacor, the US Ambassador in Uganda, Prof Emphraim Kamuntu, Minister for Tourism Wildlife and Antiquities, Mr. James Musinguzi, the Executive Director UWEC, heads of government agencies and Conservation Partners.
In her remarks, the US ambassador noted that; “the U.S Government is committed to promoting the sustainable management of Uganda’s natural resources for the benefit of present and future generations, through improving national agencies capacity to deal with key challenges of conservation” But inspiring young people to appreciate and preserve these resources is the best step in a right direction.
Its on this basis that the US Governmenet through USAID Biodiversity project and African Wildlife Foundation received support.
