Exhibition on Cuba's Rich Biodiversity and Culture Opens in New York

Havana, November 21 (RHC-ACN) – An exhibition of Cuba's rich biodiversity and culture was inaugurated Monday at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), in New York.

Maritza García García, President of Cuba's Environmental Agency, said the temporary exhibition features Cuba's unique biological diversity, considered the largest in the Caribbean region.

The Cuban expert added that the exhibit is the result of years of joint training and research collaboration between the American Museum of Natural History and Cuban institutions, mainly the Cuban Natural History Museum, the University of Havana, the Cuban Society of Botany and the National Company for the Protection of Cuban Flora and Fauna.

She added that cooperation between the American Museum of Natural History and the National Office for Protected Areas Management brought about the 2015 joint expedition to the Alejandro de Humboldt National Park --declared a Natural Heritage Site.

The exhibition in New York also features samples of flora and fauna found on Cuba's northeastern mountains, as well as the Zapata Swamp, located on the  peninsula with the same name in the province of Matanzas -- the largest wetland in the Caribbean.
