‘HEROES’ is a schools and communities based program for monitoring changes in temperature, snowfall, rainfall and phenology within the vicinity of selected schools. In total, twenty schools, across different ecological zones of Bhutan are implementing the program. The program will generate data for monitoring and measuring the impacts of climate change on wildlife and plant communities of Bhutan. The program will also enable information on the impacts of climate change to be shared amongst researchers, resource managers, educators and the general public. The project is funded by the Karuna Foundation in the US through the Bhutan Foundation.
