Lost Ladybug Project by Cornell University

I'm using a link as my title for today's post. In North America, many varieties of Ladybugs are slowly disappearing, much like many varieties of seeds for food plants.

Diversity is the key to the health of any ecosystem.

The nature of humanity is the desire for easy answers. In teaching environmental education it is important to not teach "end of the world" science. The normal response is for people to trivialize the problem or ignore the overwhelming problems.

What I like about the Lost Ladybug project is that it engages the student in a positive way.

The focus of environmental education is sustainability.
