An Oasis in the heart of the city
The Biodôme de Montréal recreates some of the most beautiful ecosystems in the Americas under its roof:
The tropical rainforest, lush, humid and warm, even in the coldest winter of Montreal; The Laurentian maple grove, which changes with the seasons; The Gulf of St. Lawrence; and the subpolar regions of the Americas: the coasts of Labrador and the subantarctic islands.
The Biodôme, whose name means “house of life”, exposes its visitors to the “true nature” of the Americas, in what their ecosystems are most beautiful and most astonishing.
When the Biodôme was inaugurated in 1992, its concept of development by “ecosystems” was a world first. Twenty years later, this systemic approach remains unmatched by the fidelity and complexity of the representation of the natural environment (“rocks”, climates, lighting, etc.) and by the finesse of the interactions between animal species as well as between animal species. and plants.
The Biodôme, like the other institutions that belong to the Space for Life (Botanical Garden, Insectarium and Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium) seeks to promote individual and collective awareness of the need to engage in the protection of the natural heritage. Its mission is materialized through actions of education, conservation, research and outreach.
