Aqua-Links began in February 2010 as an exciting new conservation effort between NaFIRRI and the Toronto Zoo in Canada, which links students from Ontario to students in Uganda to discuss biodiversity and water conservation. It is a program that focuses on the Great Lakes regions of the world, one that fosters stewardship and appreciation for water and aquatic biodiversity as precious resources.
Students from the two countries closely study the issues relating to the devastation of local fish species; in particular, the Atlantic Salmon of North America and the Haplochromine cichlid of East Africa. The program is supported by in-class visits by NaFIRRI staff and a visit to the NaFIRRI institute. Linking between students in Ontario and Uganda occurs via the internet between October and June.
If you are interested in this program and want to join, please contact the Director at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
