I just wanted to let you know about the Bugs Without Borders organization, which educates children about the importance of animals, especially insects and reptiles. You should definitely check it out and if you happen to have kids and live in Toronto why not even sign them up for the Bugs Camp?

In my opinion, it is of great importance that children start appreciating our natural world from when they are very young. If they develop a deep connection with nature they will be able to keep it throughout their life and share it with many more people around them. Children growing up in our modern urban societies don’t have as much interaction with nature and wild animals, which may make them indifferent to our global environmental problems. That’s why programs like these are so important and valuable.

Throughout their camp experience children will learn and interact with animals from various families such as Insects, Amphibians, Reptiles, Arachnids, and many more! How amazing is that!?

Bugs without borders also offers educational programs to schools as well as corporate and private events. Next week I will be helping out with one of their many events during the Earth Day, I’ll let you know how it goes!

P.S. Even if you don’t live in Toronto, there are various science summer camps which teach kids about our amazing flora and fauna, so don’t miss out 😉
