Environmental education

Paraecologists in action at schools and in village communities.

Paraecologists from the Center specialize in environmental education on grassroots 
level, visiting interested schools and village communities. 

Paraecologists talk about their biodiversity research, demonstrate insect and plant 
collections, discuss plant and animal life and rainforest ecology, and give everybody 
an opportunity to see and try some basic research tools, such as microscopes. 
They also discuss environmental problems and concerns with village communities 
and provide advice to those interested to conserve forests and animals on their lands.
