SCHOOL VISIT

This is another school located at the back-buffer forest area to Sanctuary Sierra Chincua, The visits to specially this schools surrounding the buffer areas to both Sanctuaries intend to make chldren aware of the importance of the conservation of our whole ecosystem in our region: forests meaning all kinds of trees,mushrooms, canopy and flowers in general together with their animal species living in it. This is “Ranchería Las Rosas” community; most families here, like in most of all other communities, live from agriculture and forest resources, but since Monarchs officially started to provide a job to their parents and grandparents, all of which tasks aim to conservation, families start to realize that learning more and more about all conservation aspects means assuring their own future.

“Natural conservation, altogether with the legacy of their local culture, such as mother language, customs and traditions as in this Mazahua indigenous community, shall be part of assuring our future local generations proudness and reference of identity”, Estela allows herself to comment to parents and teachers as an introduction to the visit.

Once the lesson on pollinators is presented at the clasroom, they start to write their letter to their North American and Canadian counterparts, “Do our friends in the North also have the same kinds of pollinators?”. “Oh, Estela, it is worrying to know that the less wild flowers we have around, the less nectar Monarchs and all other pollinators will get, and by that, the less they will pollinate”. “Can you see how every single creature and plant in our ecosystem plays an extremely important role?”, —Estela tells them—. “Estela, we never imagined that pollinators help so that most vegetables, fruits and grains can only grow thanks to pollination”, —others said—. “We are sure our northern friends will get shocked the moment they see how bare and poor we could remain if pollinators could dissapear from our planet, as we describe in our letter: we need to do something to increase their population!”. To which Estela responded: “Lets start by not harming them in the least way, but on the contrary, let’s protect their nests, hives, and habitat in general!”, —Estela proposed to them—. “Siiiiii !!!!”, —they all promised in chorus—.
