What a day! Theoretical session, sampling session on the field and lab work, all in a wonderful “jornada de trabalho” that brought together teachers, biologists, students, Lousada municipality staff and even a musician!
The activity aimed at a number of goals:
- To create awareness on the diversity and importance of invertebrates (they work even in January!);
- improve proximity and public perception of invertebrates – from bugs to animals;
- reduce fear and disgust from bugs;
- and raise awareness to the key role of invertebrates and ecosystem services regarding the soil.
