Fig. 6. Omora initiative emphasizes field experiences and direct or immediate encounter with other living beings. Through this educational approach, Omora Park counterbalances the excess of “mediated information,” which prevails in formal and informal education. Presently, most of our knowledge about nature is mediated through established scientific narratives, e.g., Darwin’s Voyage of the Beagle, through technological media such as TV or computers, e.g., videotape of the firecrown hummingbird visiting Philesia magellanica flowers, and/or by mathematical models and equations, e.g., the hummingbird Omora is studied through an equation for metabolic rate of Sephanoides sephaniodes. Equation taken from López-Callejas and Bozinovic (1995).
