Workshop on Molluscan Diversity and Conservation

CSC – Ghana, in collaboration with the Threatened Species Conservation Alliance (THRESCOAL) presents a one-day Practical Workshop on Molluscan Diversity and Conservation in Ghana. 

 

Molluscs (Snails) are a very sensitive group of organisms and are important for a variety of ecological, economic and social processes. Habitat loss, agrochemicals and land use change remain the biggest threats to Snails.

 

The Workshop will bring together a cross-section of ecologists, researchers, conservation biologists, stakeholders and students to enhance the knowledge and conservation of Molluscs and their habitats in Ghana, with particular emphasis on the Atewa Range Forest Reserve.

 

 

Date: 16th November, 2019

Time: 9:00am GMT

Venue: Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana

We Are 3 Today!

CSC @ 3

Today marks 3 years of CSC – Ghana’a establishment. We began on May 1, 2016 as an advocacy group in the Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources, KNUST as “Capacity For Change, Ghana“, a name which was changed to “Capacity For Sustainable Change – Ghana” in 2018.

We started by looking at waste disposal on KNUST campus and surrounding communities, interviewing students and residents of these communities. 

In our 3 years, we have been able to reach out to more than 250 residents, in working to protect biological diversity, human livelihoods and environmental integrity.

We have also built the capacities of future resource managers, ecologists and conservationists through our CSC – Ghana Workshop Series

We will continually create waves of positive change, wherever we find ourselves, and we encourage others to do so.

Working for biological diversity, for humans and for the planet!
