This project developed and presented a wetland conservation lesson to 300 students at seven schools in BenjamÃn Aceval, Paraguay and planned a wetland conservation workshop. The lesson was developed using online research, interviews, and observation. Using pre and post instruction questionnaires, student letters, and observations of student skits, it was determined that student knowledge, attitude, and skill improved by 26% as a result of the lesson. The wetland conservation workshop gave 30 students access to experts who spoke about wetland species. Recommendations for a conservation group, Karugua HaÂ’e Tekove, included a broader focus on the theme of conservation, visiting more schools to spread awareness, and making the workshop longer to make time to visit wetlands.
