Biologist and filmmaker Jean Lemire left the port of Gaspé on April 18 aboard the Sedna IV for a 1,000-day mission around the planet. Teachers and their students will therefore be invited to follow the journey of the crew on the Internet, heading for the Azores and then setting out to Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Panama and Costa Rica.

For nearly three years, Jean Lemire and his team intend to discover the immense diversity of life on the planet and bear witness to its fragile balance. The content of the shipping site should be online by mid-May. Teachers will find plenty of resources there to use in the classroom (projects, activities, information sheets, teaching materials, etc.). “Teachers will be able to use all this material to experience the 1000 Days for the Planet mission with their students. The portal will feature classes that are actually engaged in a process of protecting life on Earth and some classes will even be able to communicate directly with the Sedna IV, ”the statement said. "The selection of these classes is made on a first come, first served basis", specifies Christine Babkine, general manager of the Sedna Foundation. Classes can already register on the site at www.radio-canada.ca/sedna.

In addition, on June 22, the opening of the mission's base camp will take place at the Montreal Botanical Garden. “From the start of the school year in September, classes will be invited to go to this place of meeting, discussion and engagement. Students will be able to communicate directly with the animators on the Sedna IV, no matter where they are in the world. This privileged contact will be a spark plug for young people. When they return to class, they will be called upon to act in their environment to protect the biodiversity around them, thanks to all the activities offered, ”says Ms. Babkine.

The trip will also allow Jean Lemire to make three television and film productions.
