Sensitization in Schools - Protecting Cape Verde Sea Birds

In this project of sensibilização on the conservation of the sea birds, the Biosfera managed to visit all the elementary schools and 3 of 5 high schools, of January to May of the academic year 2017/2018. During this period all the public was very well informed about the dangers that suffer constantly the sea birds and also what can be done to save them and to preserve them.

Both students and teachers could know the sorts of sea birds that exist in Cape Verde and also they represent the importance for our country. It is of highlighting what regarding the knowledge, was very well observed the results of this project through questions and plays on the sea birds done with many children who were moved previously.

This project of sensibilização follows with much good "baggage", in the direction of the Santo Antão´s schools and São Nicolau´s schools in the near academic year 2018/2019, applying the same method as in the schools in São Vicente. We have been already doing very productive meetings with the Delegates of Education of the districts of Porto Novo, Paúl and Ribeira Grande, where what already plans the campaign of sensibilização in Santo Antão.
