The Grand Gala for Biodiversity

the Grand Gala for Biodiversity will take place in Panama City, on March 10 with the goal of highlighting aspects of biodiversity that exist in Panama that are vital to sustaining humanity.

The event is part of a plan to offer new academic and cultural events that highlights the value of the Bio Museum as a tool for raising environmental awareness through tourism and education. 

The Grand Gala for Biodiversity will bring together guests to appreciate flora and fauna through art, music, fashion, and gastronomy.

The great gala aims to highlight that now more than ever when nature is more threatened by global warming, Panama has a key role to play, as the isthmus that connects our oceans. 

The show will begin with a tour of some of the Biomuseo’s areas, and then lead the attendees to the institution’s gardens, for an open-air concert by singer Luba Mason, wife of singer-songwriter Rubén Blades. She will be accompanied by percussionist Omar Díaz, bassist Lucas Curtis and composer Joe Locke on vibraphone.

Mason expressed her excitement and enthusiasm to return to Panama after four years,  embracing what she likes most about the country, its biodiversity, and its culture.

There will also be an exhibition and auction by La Cámara de la Moda, during which pieces from the latest collection by renowned French designer Helene Breebaart, who was inspired by the beauty of the native nature of the country and always considered Panama as his home.

There will be a private panel held from 10:00 a.m.for special guests. It will be a round table in which Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes and international environmentalist Max Bello – who is also a promoter of the Our Oceans global conference – will participate, to speak on the importance of the oceans as a key instrument in the fight against climate change. The panel will also be available to view on the Bio Museum website.

The executive director of the Biomuseo, Víctor Cucalón, said that with these activities the institution seeks to be more than a tourist and leisure place that tells the story of the emergence of the isthmus, but also a research and meeting space for scientists who investigate and try to explain how the planet we know came to be.
