Port Moresby nature Park’s central lawn in Papua New Guinea hosted a meeting for international climate change meeting the French Minister of State for Development, Francophonie (National Language), as well as Partnerships, Chrysoula Zacharopoulou, and other national and international development representatives.
The talks involved multi-partner work for biodiversity and climate change resilience in Papua New Guinea, and the Pacific Islands.
Along with this, the Minister Zacharopoulou highlighted that her nation is a strong advocate for preserving biodiversity, as well as her nation is a great example of this unique paradise of biodiversity, not only in the marine biodiversity but also the forest.
While Papua New Guinea plays host to over 7 percent of the world’s biodiversity on less than 1 percent of the world’s land, many these plants, animals, lands and seas are at grave risk. The Nature Park, in turn, strives to reflect these unique values through its botanical, zoological and cultural exhibits.
The CEO of the Port Moresby Nature Park, Dr Adrian Fowler mentioned in the statement the Port Moresby Nature Park’s objective is to be PNG’s leading recreational space uplifting through education the guardianship of PNG’s unique natural environment and this visit is a testament to our work in the last 10 years. He and his entire team expresses gratitude to the government of PNG, France and their partners in hosting this event at the Park.
The Nature Park receives over 100,000 visitors every year, and is driven by its three core functions of recreation, education and conservation.
