Authorities involved in nature legislation training

On July 28th STINAPA staff gave a guest course to police and coastguard cadets. It started out in the classroom discussing nature protection and what STINAPA is doing in the field of information, awareness and enforcement. The ‘Zakboek’ (Law booklet) was used intensively to go over some incidents that STINAPA has to deal with.

During the excursion in the afternoon some sites of interest were visited around Lac Bay: the mudflats with the nesting birds, the coral mining area north of Lac and Cai. The students were very attentive and eager to learn more. STINAPA is working to have a good collaboration with the police.
