SCHOOL VISIT

This school is located at the back forest belt to Sanctuary Sierra Chincua too, —the seond largest in populatin settleing right at the border of the State of México and Michoacán, as if capriciously planed by Monarchs!!!.

After doing a brief pollinator’s and wild flowers observations, recognizing names and living habitats, 5th.-grade students proudly showed their Science books to show the study of Monarchs, where they speak about their migration phenomenon, overwintering conditions and habitat in Central México. “We knew pollination was important, but we did not know that most of what we eat in grains, fruits and vegetables depended this way on our pollinator insects”, —all the group told Estela highly concerned the moment Estela explained to them that bee’s populations were terribly decreasing due to chemical pesticides use in agriculture in many countries including us.

Estelita, it we had not realized that bats loved to visit our Magueyes and Nopales which are our only kinds of cactus”. Estela explained to them other kids of cactus would not grow in our region due to our very cold weather.

Every visit ends with phrases like: “Estelita, we of course promise to not only care of our forests, but also on our little animals, specially pollinators, since our own future is at stake!. We will ask our parents and grandparents how much about pollinators they know”.

At completing writing letters, they kept on saying: “We are terribly sorry to only imagine the world and shortage of food for mankind without the existance of our pollinators anymore!!!” .
