One of the challenges facing wildlife conservation is how to change the way people perceive wildlife.

Data was analysis using descriptive statistics. The findings reveals that majority of the respondents (74%) are male and age group 15-20 years had the highest with 43%. 63% of the respondents are aware of wildlife conservation in the study area and majority (66%) of the respondent has not visit the Kainji Lake National Park. 50% of the respondents had about wildlife through direct communication. 63% and 80% of the respondents are willing and are ready to support wildlife conservation in the study area. The finding still reveal that awareness is still lacking in most schools among the communities. Therefore more wildlife conservation awareness is needed in our various schools so as to get the interest of the students when they are still young so that generation coming will also be thought.
