SMALL GESTURES FOR THE CONSERVATION OF BIODIVERSITY

The University of Alicante, through the CIBIO Investigation Institute, and Ibi town hall reached an agreement 10 years ago which allowed the creation of the Biodiversity Museum of Ibi. It works as an exhibition space to spread the diversity of living beings and the need to protect nature. Its director, UA lecturer Eduardo Galante, assures that “from the beginning they set the goal of keeping the museum a lively, dynamic and interactive space”, which is the reason why they organise several temporary exhibitions throughout the year.

Within this exhibition programme we find “Small gestures for the conservation of biodiversity” which is being showcased for the first time at the Puerta de Alicante shopping centre and will be open to the public until next January. This exhibition is for all audiences and tries to show the richness of Biodiversity, the most important problems that are set out nowadays for its conservation and some of the problems that arise from its conservation (insertion and illegal trade of species).

With this type of initiative the museum wishes to reach out to a new audience, which, attracted by exhibitions such as this one, will be encouraged to visit the museum facilities. Galante states that the Biodiversity Museum is preparing a broad activity programme for October (since it is the 10th anniversary of the museum) the content of which will be revealed during the following weeks.
