Access to the Space for Life museums will be free on December 10 and 11 on the occasion of the 15th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 15) . 

“The preservation of biodiversity is at the heart of Space for Life's mission of dissemination, research, conservation and education. Opening our museums for free on the occasion of the COP 15 in Montreal is a way of allowing the population to celebrate this essential event,” mentioned the director of Space for Life, Julie Jodoin.

Whether at the Biodôme, the Biosphere, the Insectarium, the Botanical Garden or the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, people will be able to admire nature in many facets. This initiative, linked to the holding of COP 15 in Montreal, will make it possible to highlight not only the heritage of these museums, but also the knowledge and expertise they have in relation to biodiversity.

“COP15 is an opportunity to strengthen our environmental actions to protect biodiversity and to engage the people of Montreal in this transition. The Space for Life museums play an essential role in raising awareness among the general public and we are proud to offer the entire population the opportunity to discover or rediscover these facilities free of charge,” declared the Mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante, in a press release.

Recall that COP 15 will take place from December 7 to 19 in metropolitan France.
