A couple of weeks ago in downtown New Haven, we saw lots of butterfly papers tied on some street posts. These colorful butterflies were scribbled and colored by children to inform people about the effect of global warming towards the butterflies. The population of Monarch butterflies is declining and it’s true that I hardly see butterflies anymore nowadays. It is heartbreaking. The paper butterflies are a reminder, that if we don’t change the way we act towards nature and environment, in the future all that’s left are those scribbled and colored butterflies. I think this was a wonderful idea to include children and using arts and crafts to promote the knowledge about the butterflies.
