SCHOOL VISIT.- With the visit of this school, to the “Puente de Tierra” Community in this school, visiting grades 3rd. to 5th., the Symbolic Migration expands its ratio delivering its message on conservation of the habitat of Monarch butterflies. This school is located at the beautiful forest surroundings to the buffer zone of the Sierra Chincua Sanctuary.Ambassador Monarchs from Canadian and American students have been welcome with high enthusiasm by children and teachers. At the classroom, after children telling me about their knowledge on Monarchs, refreshing thing like: “Yes, we have heard that Monarchs overwintering here live as long as nine months!”. “and they mate here before leaving!”. Last, once in the lesson on polllinators, —to which their basic knowledge on pollination is really helping—, they said: “then Monarchs work together on pollination with the other butterflies, honey-bees, wasps, humingbirds and BATS!. Our children seem to know really little about the role of bats in nature and show fascination to know they are so much contributing to polination!. “teacher Estelita, how is it possible that a honey bee works so hard in its life-time to produce the equivalent to one big drop of honey during her whole life?, “you mean if our pollinators dissappear we will not anymore have our delicious sorts of chiles, pulque drink from our magueyes, and tunas and our delicious nopales???”, —they showed concern as they enquired—. They ended with a firm promise to care of local pollinators showing real pride on them, and were proudly writing their letters to their friends in Canada and America to let them know how much they learned today on this message brought by their Ambassador Monarchs through their symbolic migration.
