EcoKnights serves the community through development-led interventions from education and awareness programs to research; and public participation programs to consultation.

Everyone was all tired and beat especially after jungle trekking and stuffing our face silly but fun Q&A session that offer prizes to be won certainly perk things up and I’m proud to say that I still managed to pay attention and bagged some prizes despite the fact that I wanted to do nothing more than have some afternoon siesta.
