Building Agency through Bioliteracy: Modern Insect Conservation
Madagascar, South Africa, Costa Rica
On my Watson I will explore the complexities around insect conservation, bioliteracy, and agency. Collaborating with, and volunteering for, scientists around the world, I will learn from local farmers and foresters, teach insect identification and work with children alongside local translators. Although the scientific world may seem inaccessible, it can be used to empower people to engage and value the significance of insects within our communities.
