Taking action for biodiversity
Through its educational activities, conservation projects, collections, scientific research and ecological management of its institutions, Space for Life participates in preserving biodiversity and encourages the community to get involved in this movement.
Apart from integrating sustainable development in its management practices, Space for Life calls on citizens, inviting them to reconnect with nature through experiences and events, take action and explore new ways of living.
International Day for Biological Diversity
At the Space for Life, we study, conserve and protect nature, and help out by restoring natural environments and reintroducing species. Every year on May 22, the International Day for Biological Diversity is an opportunity to underscore the importance of all forms of life. No species can survive on its own, for they are all interrelated.
Seed balls, May 22, 2010
In May 2010, as our first symbolic act, the Space for Life team and 4,200 students from RÉPAQ schools marked the International Day for Biological Diversity by tossing seed balls onto the path linking the Insectarium and the Biodôme, to fill it with colourful flowers.
