Pilot Project for the Conservation of Biodiversity in Azraq Oasis Using Information Technology
Pilot Project for the Conservation of Biodiversity in Azraq Oasis Using Information Technology
In the north-eastern Jordanian Badia, and in cooperation with the Azraq Wetland Reserve managed by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, the South Azraq Women Society for Social Development will implement this project which aims at fostering partnership between the local community and the Wetland Reserve through participation in environmental research and monitoring programs implemented by the Reserve, such as the Bird Monitoring Program and the Bird Ringing Program. This will be achieved through establishing an IT center that will enable students to log into web sites related to nature conservation, with special focus on wetlands, where they can access information on migratory birds and the various elements that affect their migration. The project will organize student visits to the Reserve, various awareness activities, and will produce outreach materials that would contribute to achieving project objectives.
