SOCIAL MEDIA FOR CONSERVATION

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

Khalil Gibran

We cannot make any meaningful gains in conservation if all efforts aimed at conserving it are not geared towards the generation that will come after us.

Too many forums are held,too much money has been spent on conservation efforts all over the world .

We need to  engage millions of youth in conservation matters in the forums they frequent the most.we need to talk to them in a language they understand and can relate to.

There are so many ways conservation can benefit from social media.

Whether it is by use of  images or videos there is something for everyone on the social media platform that will go far and beyond the numerous conferences that form most conservation efforts.

The use of  images,videos or infographics will ensure the   message  gets passed along that conservation matters.

Pinterest which at the moment is the fastest growing media forum has an especially special appeal as it has a mobile application available for most android phones which are very popular among young people.

Are we going to let the chance to make a difference slip away ?
