Abstract

There is a lack of wetland conservation knowledge in Paraguay. This project promoted wetlands conservation and awareness in Benjamín Aceval. There were classroom programs that reviewed wetlands knowledge and introduced science fairs. Contacts at the Escuela Agricola San Francisco helped the team set up the science fair and communicate with the community. Nine schools and 400 students saw the classroom presentations. Three schools participated in the science fair, totaling forty-six students. WPI students run six wetland conservation activities. Science fair surveys collected information from participating students. Future recommendations include making the science fair an annual event, and incorporating more schools into the science fair.
