Montreal Biodome, Canada: detailed description, address and photo. Types of animals, excursions to the zoo, reviews of tourists.

Montreal Biodome is both a scientific center and an ecological zoo, combining five mini-copies of ecosystems at once (South American rainforest, North American Laurentian mixed forest, marine zone - a copy from the Gulf of St. Lawrence, polar zone of the Arctic and Antarctic). In the Amphitheater of the Environment, popular science films are shown, lectures are given on protecting the environment, maintaining the ecosystem and preserving natural beauty.

By the way, it is no coincidence that the Montreal Biodome is located next to the Olympic Stadium: its construction was timed to coincide with the 1976 Olympics, and in those years it performed quite sporting and prosaic functions - it was a velodrome. After just 12 years, a decision was made to transform the building into a unique complex on a large scale.

Today Biodome is not just a zoo, an aquarium or an insectarium, it is all the above, mixed and served under the sauce of caring for the environment and eliminating the illiteracy of the young population of the planet. I must say, the kids really like it here. Where else can you see several thousand animals of 250 completely different species - from tigers to beetles, from baboons to anteaters?
