“From Red to Green: Loro Parque Fundación protecting world’s biodiversity” is an exhibition whose main objective is to highlight the joint efforts of Loro Parque Fundación and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in the protection of biodiversity in the Macaronesia. This region, recognized as home to the greatest variety of animal and plant species in Europe, has become a crucial point for the conservation and preservation of our precious natural heritage.
This exhibition will serve as a framework to present two initiaives to the parliament being both of them essential for the protection of the biodiversity in the Macaronesia. First, we will highlight the Macaronesia Marine Biodiversity Sanctuary, an ambitious initiative that seeks to establish a protected area that safeguards the region’s unique marine ecosystems. This proposal, supported by Loro Parque Foundation, aims to preserve and restore the health of the oceans by promoting the conservation of marine species and the sustainability of marine resources. Secondly, we will focus on the proposal to extend the anti-submarine SONAR moratorium. Being aware of the negative impacts that this technology can have on marine mammals and biodiversity in general, Loro Parque Fundaciónn advocates for the extension of the moratorium currently in place in order to guarantee the protection and well-being of vulnerable marine species.
The exhibition will also seek to find synergies between the European biodiversity strategy and the conservation work of European zoos and aquariums and it will be available from the 23th until the 27th of October at Altiero SPINELLI Floor 3 SPINELLI Distribution Centre Area – 3D.
