Le monarque : un papillon à protéger

Le monarque est un magnifique papillon noir et orange; un des plus grands papillons diurnes du Canada. Davantage présent il y a une vingtaine d'années, le monarque est de moins en moins aperçu. En 2003, on le considérait déjà comme une espèce en péril, mais avec 90% de sa population en déclin, il est classé en voie de disparition depuis 2016. Les changements climatiques, l’utilisation de pesticides ainsi que la destruction de son habitat causent son déclin. Regards sur comment nous pouvons agir sur l’environnement et notre communauté de façon éthique et responsable.

The Monarch : a Butterfly to Protect

The monarch is a magnificent black and orange butterfly; actually, it is one of the biggest diurnal butterflies in Canada. You may have seen one before since they fly around houses collecting nectar from flowers. However, if you were born 20 years earlier, you would have seen many more. In 2003, the monarch was already considered an at-risk species, but with a population decline of 90%, it has been an endangered species sin 2016. The climate changes, the use of pesticides and the destruction of its natural habitat lead to its demise.

A Special Feature on COVID- 19: What Can History Teach Us?

As part of a series of SCOOP! on COVID-19, today we address what history can teach us about ways to cope with a pandemic. COVID-19 has been quite active for a few months and leaves its mark all around the globe. Much like the Black Death (a type of plague), the Spanish flu, SARS, the avian flu, or even Ebola, COVID-19 will also make history in its own way. Unfortunately, these diseases are responsible for millions of deaths. They also allow society to make tremendous technological progress, medical advances, and foster human growth. Have we learned from the previous epidemics? Which lessons will we draw from this very exceptional situation which is undergoing at the moment?

Une question de motivation!

Confinés à la maison à cause de la COVID-19, notre degré de motivation est plus variable que jamais. Pour certains élèves, cette recherche de motivation dans un contexte d'école à la maison est particulièrement ardue, et ce, pour plusieurs raisons internes et externes. Regards sur l'engagement des jeunes à travers cette épreuve inédite.

Did You Say Eco-Epidemiology?

For many years, environmentalists, scientists, farmers, and other groups have been sounding the alarm. The exchange of germs is becoming more frequent than it was before. They note that every 14 to 16 months, a new infection appears. The conditions for these infections to develop, transmit, and remain active are more and more favourable.
