Since its construction in 2006, our state-of-the-art Tropical Forest Conservatory has undergone major redesigns every three years to showcase the ecology of tropical forest regions around the world. We are excited to announce that our next exhibit will focus on the ecology of Cuba, and will open in 2018. As part of the three-year planning and design process behind this large-scale show, Phipps Director of Science Education and Research Dr. Emily Kalnicky and Exhibit Coordinator Jordyn Melino are traveling to Cuba to study first-hand the region’s biodiversity hotspots, natural resources and culture. Follow their adventures!
