“Young Conservationists” – An exciting new initiative from our Youth Wing

“Young conservationists” is a new program series organized by the WNPS Youth Wing in collaboration with the BEEZ (Base for Enthusiasts of Environmental Science and Zoology). University of Colombo. Inspiring young people to explore the potential avenues of contributing to conservation while broadening their career prospects, this program plans to create internship opportunities for the youth.  

As the first program of the series, a career guidance workshop was conducted at the University of Colombo on the 23rd of February. With around 30 individuals actively participating, this session featured four resource persons who represented different fields in conservation. Mr. Sanith de Silva Wijeyeratne, Ms. Zaineb Akbarally, Ms Anya Rathnayaka, and Prof. Sampath Seneviratne have shared their experiences in their respective fields, and were inspiring the audience with each session. 

The event was successfully concluded with a debrief session, which allowed all the participants to share their feedback. The next step of this program would be creating internship opportunities at the WNPS which will allow the interns to actively engage in conservation projects. 

Exciting opportunities are on their way! Stay tuned!
