Environmental extension as effective tool for sustainable natural resource use

L.A. Akinbile

Abstract


Environmental extension which is the propagation of sustained natural resource use involves dissemination of products of interaction between an entity and its surrounding in a manner of mutual relationship among its component. It should involve all possible interaction of all actors in environmental concerns, i.e. its users, researchers ad change agents in ways of horizontal dissemination of information to foster common understanding of the environment and its management.

This paper suggests ways of maintaining bio-diversity through sustained use of natural resources and use of mass education through environmental extension. This should reduce the threat to man's existence by the depletion of environmental resources..
