Join Nature Next

Imagine a world where nature, and our future, are no longer threatened. A future where knowledge inspires people to make and support informed, realistic decisions that save the world. How can you help make it a reality? Look to the honeybees for inspiration.

A bee will make only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime. That is a small portion of the hundred pounds of honey that most bee colonies need to make in order to survive. The most impressive fact: a bee won't benefit directly from the honey that she produces; instead, it will allow future generations to thrive after she is gone.

The members of Nature Next—"the Nexties"—are like the honeybees: they're a group of young professionals who are passionate about seeing a better natural future and are filling up their 1/12th of a teaspoon to save the world for future generations.

Join the Nexties and help the Canadian Museum of Nature save the world for future generations through evidence, knowledge and inspiration!
