A group of twenty four Nature Club students ranging from classes IV to IX of Khasadrapchu Middle Secondary School visited the National Biodiversity Centre (NBC) on 30th November 2012. The group was escorted by the club coordinator. The main objective for this kind of educational visit was to give exposure to the students about the kind of work undertaken by the centre towards conservation and sustainable utilization of our rich biodiversity and to see the different programs and facilities of NBC.
In line with the objective of their visit, an official from NBC presented on the historical background and the programs of the Centre. Subsequent to the presentation, the students visited the genebanks (Plant Gene Bank and Animal Gene Bank), National Herbarium, Bioprospecting Laboratory and the Royal Botanical Garden later in the afternoon.
