(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Environment Society of Oman (ESO) has concluded its tree planting programme by reaching out to school students in the Dhofar Governorate from March 30 to April 2.

The week-long activity marks the second and final phase of ESO's Let's Plant One' campaign, which has been running since last year. The initiative aimed to spread awareness on the importance of planting indigenous trees to preserve Oman's natural heritage and to reduce the number of invasive alien trees in the country.

The Let's Plant One' campaign was spearheaded by ESO with the support the Ford Motor Company Conservation and Environmental Grants and Port of Salalah, committing themselves to planting indigenous trees in Dhofar before April 2014. Students from 26 schools took part in an interactive discussion about the importance of indigenous trees and why they should be protected, followed by a fun group activity.

Participating schools and students received booklets, T-shirts, caps and other gifts providing information and featuring pictures of harmful and invasive alien tree species. Ahmed Akaak, acting CEO, Port of Salalah, said, ''By planting trees, we are sending a clear signal that we are committed to creating a sustainable future. Trees provide us with many benefits by reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and making our society more resilient to climate change.

The governorate is host to more than 900 plant species, one of Oman's richest biodiversity zones and planting indigenous trees will ensure that this natural treasure is preserved for future generations.'' Nuhaila Al Suleimani, Education Coordinator at ESO said, ''The Let's Plant One' campaign has gone full circle and is ending off in the same place it started off, by involving and educating the youth of Oman.

This underscores the emphasis we have placed on young people during the past year. We have aimed to create a new generation of ambassadors for the country as we see this as the most effective way to drive change and spread awareness. We have received a very positive response from all students who took part in the activities and we are happy to say that the programme has been a resounding succe
