Remembering Jérôme (1990-2000)Jérôme Brisson-Curadeau was born in 1990. He was the son of Manon Curadeau, a scientific interpreter at the Biodôme and Jacques Brisson, a researcher at the Botanical Garden. At age 10, Jérôme died after being bitten by a rabid bat. This tragic event deeply affected all our employees, who decided to do something to support their colleagues. They collected donations and created the Jérôme Brisson-Curadeau bursary fund, as a way of sharing Jérôme’s love of nature with other young people. You can listen to Manon and Jacques speaking about Jérôme and their hopes in this video (in French only).
