The marine biodiversity of Reunion Island is on show in Paris

The marine biodiversity of Reunion Island is on show in Paris ( Once more Reunion Island is inviting people on a voyage to discover its marine biodiversity. The Indian Ocean and wealth on offer in its tropical waters are on show in a wide range of colors and shapes throughout the “Marine biodiversity of Reunion Island" exhibition focused on this silent universe. Here it is possible to visit the exhibition held at the Porte Doree Aquarium in Paris from November.

The Porte Doree Aquarium will host the “Marine biodiversity of Reunion Island" exhibition, from November 8 to March 23, 2014. This exhibition will take place following the Biolave exhibition, focusing on discovery of new marine species living on the slopes of the Piton de la Fournaise Volcano on Reunion Island.

During the Year of Biodiversity in 2010, Sciences Reunion, a scientific, technical, and industrial culture center on Reunion Island wanted to promote the hotspot of marine biodiversity on the Island.

Several initiatives were developed by the Science Reunion Association in the framework of its role of disseminating knowledge of the marine environment. Promotion of specific ecosystems, raising awareness of marine life, and the need to understand and preserve fragile ecosystems are among the very core of the objectives of Science Reunion.

In 2013, the “Marine biodiversity of Reunion Island" exhibition represents a synthesis of various actions performed by Science Reunion. It is supported by “Reunion Island - Marine Biodiversity," a publication showcasing the work of nine photographers who captured underwater images. This book allows visitors, throughout this educational visit, to discover the exceptional biological riches on offer in the volcanic marine setting of Reunion Island. The images and comments provide visitors with the keys to understanding this environment, as well as areas for further reflection as to the role which mankind should play in preserving marine biodiversity on show throughout the exhibition.

It should be noted that prior to traveling to Paris, the “Marine biodiversity of Reunion Island" exhibition was on show in Marseille from October 31 to November3 at the Chanot Park Exhibition Centre, in the framework of the 40th World Festival of Underwater Pictures.
