From polar bears in the Arctic to marine turtles off the coast of Africa, our planet’s diversity of life is at risk from the changing climate. In context of Nepal, climate change is creating habitat issues in wildlife management. Climate change has been one of the core issues in the field of wildlife conservation. Hence greater recognition is essential among the people to usher the biodiversity conservation. For this young students who can be key actors in conservation need to understand the conservation significance of wildlife and ecosystem services they provide. Training and awareness raising programs such as workshops, interaction programs, and rallies are of paramount importance to foster the greater appreciation towards wildlife conservation and raise voice against climate changing factors. These programs can act as a catalytic role in convincing students to enrich their understanding of climate changing factors.
Hence this one day interaction program is proposed here to motivate the students to participate in climate conservation, understand the impacts of climate change in daily livelihood and develop leadership in speaking regarding conservation issues.
