„The Disappearing World“
"The Disappearing World" exhibition shows the richness of biological diversity in the world and Bosnia and Herzegovina and its importance for humanity and points out the causes of the disappearance of species and the need for their protection.
Biological diversity, or biodiversity, encompasses all the diversity of life on Earth. It includes millions of different biological species that live on the planet today, as well as diversity at the level of the genes and ecosystems. To date, around 1.9 million species have been described in the world, although the real number is certainly significantly higher and can exceed 10 million.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is characterized by high and unique richness of biological and landscape diversity, and is, in relation to total area, considered to be among the most diverse countries in Europe. With numerous endemic and relict species, mostly plants, fish and invertebrates, Bosnia and Herzegovina is among the world’s richest countries when it comes to biodiversity.
"The Disappearing World" exhibition, which was selected based on the results of voting of museum visitors, will be opened in the new premises of the Department of Natural Sciences, whose reconstruction was funded by the Environmental Fund of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The realization of the exhibition was supported by: JP BH POŠTA d.o.o. Sarajevo, Gazprom petrol stations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Wurth BH d.o.o., as well as visitors of the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina with their contributions.
The official opening of the exhibition is on Wednesday, February 27, 2019. at 14:00 in the building of the Department of Natural Sciences.
