Saturday 3rd March is designated by the United Nations as World Wildlife Day. Gibraltar will commemorate the day on Friday the 2nd of March at the Gustavo Bacarisas Exhibition Gallery in Casemates when the Minister for the Environment, Professor John Cortes, will inaugurate an exhibition entitled ‘The Magic of Birds’ at 18:30 hours. The exhibition will show a series of over 100 stunning images taken by wildlife photography team composed of Stewart, Geraldine and Clive Finlayson.
The team, also known by the name Finlayson Nature Photography, have put together an exhibition based on photographs taken in different parts of the northern hemisphere, including Gibraltar itself. Some of these were used in their recent book “Lost World” which describes the Nature and Heritage of the Gorham’s Cave Complex World Heritage Site but there will be many others that have not been seen until now.
The exhibition will be open from the 3rd to the 28th of March daily between 10:00am and 1:00pm & 3:00pm and 7:00pm and will be the centre piece for the 2018 event.

20th March – Dr Juan José Negro (Former Director of the Doñana Biological Station)
27th March – Professor John Cortes (Minister for the Environment).
The lectures will be at 18:30 hours. All events are free.
These events will also form part of the Youth Arts Jamboree, organised by Gibraltar Cultural Services.
