Pom Nature Park to commemorate World Environment Day

The Port Moresby Nature Park will commemorate World Environment Day this Saturday, June 3 to encourage people to connect with nature.

With the theme ‘Connecting People through Nature’, the event aims to promote nature conservation.

This will be Nature Park’s fifth year in partnership with BSP to host World Environment Day.

POMNP general manager Michelle McGeorge said this year will be even bigger and better with more than 22 organisations participating.

Organisations including Brian Bell will showcase solar and clean energy, waste products and healthy chemicals, KK Kingston, Eda Ranu, PNG Power and other big organisations will attend.

A number of government department and non-profitable organisations will also attend.

McGeorge said, “The event is targeted for the whole family and we are hoping that everyone will come out to enjoy the day and help celebrate World Environment Day. 

“The idea is to basically bring the families in and get themselves connected to the plants and animals in the park.

“They’ll have the opportunity to see the plants and animals and connect with them and at least show an appreciation towards the natural environment.”

She said that people get to go home with the message that they can care for the environment.
