Comic Book and Illustrations on Wildlife Conservation Published

In late September 2016, ProCEEd published a comic book titled "My Little Deer Friend" and a series of illustrations on wildlife conservation. These publications were first put to good use on the Environmental Tour that has been on the road since early October 2016. Since 2013, the tours have typically used poster series on the 10 FACTs of a given theme, e.g. forest protection. Five posters held two FACTs each, with a photo and 2-4 bullet points of text related to the topic. But the tour operators realized that their rural audiences often have an ethnic background and do not speak Lao language, and that many of them are illiterate. Therefore, back in late 2015, the project decided to use more  visual than text information in its environmental education tools and activities.
