In the week before Clean Up Kyambura, Mr. Yowasi Byaruhanga made an appointment to meet with the Community Conservation Warden, Mrs Olivia Biira. Yowasi also contacted Ramathan from Katunguru as issues to discuss were vital for the benefit of all the twinned schools and beyond.
Madam Olivia agreed to meet with both one afternoon. Among the issues to discuss were conservation and wildlife protection awareness to the people of Kyambura, which aimed at involving the youth more in conservation activities and rubbish management; discussing the evaluation of the points as were discussed in the meeting with the twinning project team some time back; improving the relationship between the park and the schools through ranger visits to encourage and pass on conservation messages; and lots more ideas.
This opened with assigning the duty to the ranger to visit the schools. Fisher visited Kafuro Primary School. The children were very happy to receive Fisher and Madam Auleria who had a period of more than forty minutes to interact with the children and teachers.
Among the question, Fisher asked children in Kafuro were:
Which animals do you always see in the park?
Which animals visit you from the park?
Among the animals you have mentioned, which one do you like to see most and why?
Which animals do you not care to see and why?
Which animals should be removed from the park?
Name the wild animals that live in water?
What problems do hunters face?
What should the park authority do to the hunters?
How can we together prevent hunting?
Which animal in the park is the best in cooperation?
What do you learn from the cooperation of the animal named above?
We would like to ask the same questions to our friends in Liss Junior school to answer the same questions in relation to their environment and considering if they lived in Uganda. and we shall share our answers on Tuesday.
