Double Funding From Te Me Um

The 20,000 euros of funding allocated to the Réserve Naturelle by Te Me Um in 2021 for a project on “the reappropriation of Saint Martin’s natural heritage by its children,” allowed the Réserve to augment its teaching materials: activity notebooks for the students, baseball caps, T-shirts, and most importantly anatomic sculptures of several species on sharks, which are frequently used in classrooms. Te Me Um, a program designed to support the operations of the biodiversity sector in the French overseas islands, is backed by the French Office For Biodiversity (OFB). At the same time, a micro-project concerning the study of invasive exotic species has benefitted from a second grant from Te Me Um, for the sum of 4,300 euros. This will allow the Education Department to purchase a GPS, a new camera, digital tablets, and to print certain invasive exotic species in 3D.

Skyepharma, a company that financed a first activity notebook for the CE1 to CM2 students in 2020, has renewed its funding and will underwrite the printing of 300 new notebooks.
