Division of Nature Education at SACON involves in activities to inculcate love for Nature and conservation concern among people, especially the younger generation. Many programmes are being conducted for spreading the message of conservation of nature with focus on birds. The primary thrust is given to learning by doing. We encourage all nature lovers and all those who are interested in observation and learning from nature. This is an attempt ‘to learn how to learn from Nature’. We are here to EXPLORE the world around us, we SHARE whatever we see and learn, and we nurture the feeling of CARE, because that is central to nature conservation.
