Endangered Species (Virtual Explorer Day)

January 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST

Saving Taylor’s Checkerspot Butterflies 

Endangered Species Technologist Michelle Polley from Wildlife Preservation Canada will guide you through the life of these small, flappy, endangered animals. Get a sneak peek at her job of raising them in captivity. Learn about butterfly survival strategies – what do their beautiful colours really mean, and what do birds think of them?

Most importantly, get an up close look at how humans are helping this species to come back from the brink of extinction.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
