The Mériscope is in the Final of the Canadian Nature Inspiration Awards 2022
Each year, the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa presents a prestigious award, the « Nature Inspiration Award ». The award recognizes individuals and organizations that encourage people to take an interest in natural history, experience nature and engage in conservation.
Mériscope is one of five finalists in the small and medium-sized nonprofit category of this year’s Nature Inspiration Awards, the Canadian Museum of Nature has announced in multiple media outlets. You can see the list of finalists on the museum’s website. The winners of the 2022 Nature Inspiration Awards will be selected by a jury and will be announced at a gala in Ottawa on November 14, 2022.
As most of you know, research, education and conservation have been three important pillars of our mission since the beginning of the Mériscope. We are convinced that by bringing young people into close contact with nature, teaching them specific skills and giving them leadership qualities, we are creating a sustainable impetus for the protection of oceans and marine mammals. We would like to help these young talents to be able to make the right decisions in their later professional life when it comes to environmental and climate protection.
We are honored to be among the finalists of the Nature Inspiration Awards and see this nomination as recognition for our work. If you would like to actively support our candidacy for the Nature Inspiration Awards 2022, we would be very happy to receive a comment on our Facebook page and/or on our Tripadvisor page. We will continue to protect marine mammals and marine ecosystems through research, education, outreach and conservation. The most important tools in all our projects are creativity, enthusiasm and professionalism.
