The World Wildlife Day 2017 was celebrated in Albania through a number of activities under the motto “Engaging and empowering the youth” from 28 February to 4 March 2017 by seven offices of Regional Administration for Protected Areas (RAPA) with the support of NaturAL Project, NAPA and in collaboration with Directories of Education of Gjirokastra, Vlora, Fier, Shkodra, Berat, Kukës and Dibër.
Following the principal theme “Listen to the young voices”, all the activities encouraged the youth, as future decision makers, to act for the protection of endangered wildlife.
During a two days awareness campaign, children and teachers got acquainted with the importance of wildlife in the nearby protected areas and their biodiversity values through the presentation “Visit protected area – Shelter of Wildlife”. They had an opportunity to join excursions to the protected areas, experience the wildlife tracks and learn about the importance of landscapes. Leaflets, notebooks, real sized animals’ figures, and other information materials were disseminated, while children interacted with RAPAs’ and NaturAl project staff. In Shkodra, children from high school “Oso Kuka” attended an information session delivered by NaturAl project staff at the EU Information Shkodra Centre premises introducing NaturAL “Green Steps” magazine focusing on nature education.
A special thanks goes to students and children of high schools “Derviçan” in Gjirokastra, “Pilo Prifti” in Novoselë, Vlora, “Divjaka”, “Miza” and “Kristaq Shtëmbari” schools in Fier, private school “Drita e Dijes” in Berat, “Oso Kuka” and “Zogaj” school in Shkodra, high school “Havzi Nela” in Kukes and professional high school “Nazmi Rushiti” in Diber, for their interest and participation.
