The United Nation’s Development Program will continue to support the programs that protect Papua New Guinea’s flora and fauna.
Resident Representative, Roy Trivedy while officiating at the opening of a new administrative building and ablution block for the Tenkile Conservation Alliance (TCA) at Lumi in West Sepik province said UNDP’s support is on environment conservation and protection of endangered species.
And they will work closely with organisations that carry out such programs.
The new administrative building and ablution block cost around K330, and was funded by UNDP and the Conservation and Environment Protection Authority. The new building will accommodate visitors and researchers.
“ TCA’s work is very important and commended their effort in protecting the environment and driving development,” he said.
TCA is a non-government organisation established in 2001 aimed at conserving the biodiversity of Papua New Guinea’s Torricelli Mountain Range using the critically endangered Tenkile and Weimang Tree Kangaroos as flagship species.
Meanwhile, TCA Chief Executive Officer, Jim Thomas, thanked all donors and partners involved in their development over the last 15 years.
