The rural communities of Brasso Seco, Brasso Tamana, Grande Riviere, Guayaguayare, Moruga, Blanchisseuse, Matura and Matelot will benefit through training in species identification. This training can serve as the basis for guan-centred eco-tourism and provides an opportunity to increase local pride and sense of ownership of this species.
The project will engage bodies such as the Forestry Division’s Wildlife Section, the Environmental Management Authority, Asa Wright Nature Centre, the Pawi Study Group, the World Pheasant Association, the Confederation of Hunters’ Associations for Conservation, and Birdlife International.
Launch of ‘Promise of the Pawi’ The Promise of the Pawi is an illustrated children’s book written by Janice Hernandez. It was produced by the Guardian Life Wildlife Fund in collaboration with As a Wright Nature Centre and with the support of advertising firm Lonsdale Saatchi & Saatchi.
The book is aimed at children 4 to 11 and serves a dual purpose – to educate our young population and to raise funds to support the work of the Trust. It recently won a highly prestigious silver “Addy” in the American Advertising Federation (AAF) awards.
