Abu Dhabi: The International Fund for Houbara Conservation (IFHC) has launched the conservation education online portal as part of its ‘Conservation Education: the Houbara Model’ program. The new portal was unveiled at IFHC’s pavilion at ADIHEX, held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
The portal offers an entertaining range of educational lessons, interactive games, and information about Al-Sana’a, focusing on Emirati heritage, social traditions, and etiquette. The innovative portal further seeks to highlight the principles of sustainability and environmental conservation concerning challenges such as pollution, climate change, and other threats facing humans and wildlife.
Students can register and access various educational practices, which will assist them in gaining deeper insight into many subjects, including science, geography, mathematics, and social studies.
Furthermore, the portal aims to enhance the learning experiences of young students and offer access to interdisciplinary modules created in the form of gamified educational models. The portal also provides educators and teachers with professional development opportunities and helps them prepare lessons in more engaging ways that will effectively influence the minds, behaviours, and career aspirations of students.
The launch of the portal was held in the presence of representatives from the UAE Ministry of Education, the Emirates Foundation for School Education, Houbara ambassadors, and other ADIHEX visitors.
