Foundation to partner with states on environmental conservation


The Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) says plans are underway to partner with state governments from the South-East on environmental conservation and ecotourism.Mr. Oladapo Soneye, the Head, Communications, NCF, who made this known, said the purpose of the partnership was to see how some forest reserves in the South-East could be revived and how some centres could be converted to ecotourism destinations.

Soneye appealed to Nigerians to take up tree planting and recover lost forest as well as properly manage waste to ensure a cleaner environment.

He stressed that if the environment was not properly looked after, it would fight back as seen in the flooding issues in some parts of the country.

He  also said that the foundation is in the forefront of ensuring Nigerians prosper while living in harmony with nature.
