The Natural Side of Cuba
Tue July 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Cuba offers a Caribbean adventure filled with stunning tropical ecosystems and the chance to engage with a singular island culture on the brink of rapid change. Travel along with Expedition Leader Renzo Zeppilli as he leads us through a people-to-people encounter with contemporary Cubans and their rich natural and cultural history. A journey through Cuba takes us to World Heritage Sites, UN Biosphere Reserves, national parks, botanical gardens and community conservation initiatives. As we journey through this webinar, we’ll savor an authentic Cuban meal, admire colonial architecture as we saunter through historic cities, and encounter the island’s irresistible music and rich dance tradition. At Zapata National Park, which is rarely visited by tourists, we’ll dip into a vast reserve that includes tropical forest, healthy reefs and the Caribbean’s largest and most important wetlands. Renzo reveals the sites and insights of Cuban scientists, naturalists, academics, farmers, community activists, artists, business owners and more during this enticing webinar in Undiscovered Cuba.
