This project raised wetland conservation awareness through the development and implementation of an interactive and hands-on educational program for students from nine schools in Benjamín Aceval, Paraguay.The program included in-class presentations and a wetland workshop that provided more than 50 students hands-on experience with their local wetlands. The team delivered recommendations to the project collaborators: Benjamín Aceval schools and the local conservation group, Karugua Ha’e Tekove. The recommendations suggest that (1) Karugua Ha’e Tekove take over the educational program, (2) there be semi-annual workshops and/or science fairs for the students, (3) there be a guidebook dedicated to the wetlands and area of Benjamín Aceval, and (4) the program be extended to the Qom communities.
