You’re familiar with the Mission Monarch project? Well, thanks to a $25,000 grant from Environment and Climate Change Canada awarded following an application by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority for the project Nation Monarch, there will be more chances to take part in this citizen-based research project directed by the Space for Life Insectarium.
A grant that comes at just the right time
In a participatory project like this, what’s especially key is to have the means to raise awareness and provide training not just for the general public but also for the staffs of organizations devoted to the environment, to biodiversity and to nature. The goal? Getting them involved so that they in turn can share information about Mission Monarch with their members and encourage them to participate in a project dedicated to safeguarding the monarch butterfly. For the time being this grant will make it possible for us to increase our educational activities (training, information booths, field activities, etc.) in Québec and in Ontario. We’re working hard on extending our network to the Prairies.
