SCHOOL VISIT.-

The symbolic migration continues its tour around the back-belt forests and schools to the Sierra Chincua Sanctuary, —the second biggest discovered around 1980 by the American scientist Dr. Lincoln Brower—. Children at this school have been particularly enthusiastic at participating in class, excitingly naming, recognizing and telling wonderful anecdotes in their lives at running into different animal species still living in these wonderful Oyamel forests around them, including pollinators!: “The other day I could see three bats hanging upside-down at a high wall at home”!, —Gisela exclaimed—; “My grand-pa’s have got bee hives at home, and we all children in the family are learning how to get the honey out of them when ready!; I would like to be a bee-keeper in the future like my grand-pa’s!”. “We too have bee hives at home”, —several other girls responded—. “Dad and me tell the names of every bird and hummingbird we see as we go into the forest to pick up woods and delicous tea to heat our home” —Salvador “Chava” (shortname) proudly said—; “I love to observe animals everywhere; their behaviour is very, very interesting; we humans are not aware that if they dissappear, we will also dissappear!!!”, —Mario stated really concerned to his classmates, while the others kept still and rapt attention to his concern—, but then Aurora and Joel responded: “We are learning much more than our parents and grandparents at school, so that we can improve all this situation; right now, that Monarchs are still making us aware of the wonderful forests we have around, let’s just act!”. —Estela could then let them see about the importance of insects for human life, reminded together with them the process of pollination, on which they were really knowledgeable, and only some facts were missing—. “So, so many foods we have thanks to pollinators"!, our parents are main productors of potatoes and corn and wheat!, Mom makes the most delicious cheese and milk candies at home!, we go to the forest and can grab so many kinds of teas, delicious mushrooms… while we see so many pollinators flying around there, Monarchs and other butterflies also pollinating with them!”. Making them aware of our beautiful local flower varieties was, —as in every school—, extremely important!. Mentioning to them the value of all this incredible variety of wild flowers in our forests and praries and meadows, fruits and vegetables in our country thanks to our weather conditions, different to other countries that have to bring them from far away countries by boat or plain, and buy them far more expensive because they cannot produce them due to their hard winters, kept them dumb and mouth and eyes wide open at learning on this!. During break time, they were fascinated going around their school yard with their magnifying glasses recognizing little bugs and realizing how big a yard they have to plant different local flowers and even trees around to make it look greener and more interesting!. We simply spent “the most incredible day in our life”, as many of them shouted the moment we could hardly say good-bye to each other…!!!
