Support to cultural values and conservation – an approach towards conservation of natural resources in Uganda

Henry Kizito Seguya

The role of cultural and spiritual values in achieving conservation goals is gaining popularity among researchers and practitioners. Research findings prove that cultural values contribute to conservation goals, but, little has been done in the way of practical implementation. The cultural values and conservation project in Uganda is among the pioneers to demonstrate practical integration of cultural values in the management of protected areas. The goal of this internship is to interest young conservationists in the field of culture and conservation. The intern will also assist the innovative project to reach out to the youth through documentation of lessons learnt over the years and disseminating this information to the youth and rural communities.
