BUTTERFLIES AND GARDENS
The Ecozoo is involved in the « Butterflies and Gardens » Program launched in 2006 along with the « Nicolas Hulot Foundation for Nature and Mankind ».
All volunteers are asked, three times a year, to look for snails and slugs in their gardens, and to identify them and forward their observations to the MNHN Scientists. The main objective is to ensure a follow-up on the population of common species living alongside mankind where we have little idea whether their numbers are growing or not.
In the same way, the Zoo is working on a group of bumblebees and carpenter bees.
