Exhibition "Critically Endangered"
Araucaria, kaori, orchids, palms, ferns ... do the Caledonians suspect the richness of the forests and maquis of Caillou? And yet, New Caledonia is recognized worldwide as a biodiversity hotspot because of the diversity and vulnerability of its terrestrial flora: nearly 3400 species listed and ¾ endemic (ie unique to the New Caledonia).
From the 10th to the 31st of October, the photo exhibition "Danger Critique d'Extinction - A trip to the threatened flora of New Caledonia" is presented at the Bernheim library in Noumea. This photo exhibition is based on the voluntary contributions of 26 botanist-photographers who participate to the Endemia's large inventory of threatened flora of New Caledonia. A sample of 21 endemic species has been selected to illustrate a panorama of threatened plants.
Later, this exhibition will visit the 4 corners of the Caillou to bring to the Caledonians a look at the threatened flora of their village and tribe. In November, it will be presented in Yate. If you are interested in receiving it, please contact us.This exhibition was carried out with the financial assistance of the European Union under the BEST2.0 program. Coming soon and with the assistance of SPC, an English version will be available.
