Cuba’s political relationship with the United States is changing, and with it, potentially it’s biodiversity. In this podcast, conservation biologist and co-curator of the exhibition ¡Cuba! , Ana Luz Porzecanski, moderates a panel on contemporary Cuba, its people, identity, and biodiversity. You will hear from historian and policy expert Julia Sweig, anthropologist Ruth Behar, environmental lawyer Dan Whittle, and Museum herpetologist and co-curator of ¡Cuba! Chris Raxworthy. This event took place at the Museum on March 9, 2017. ¡Cuba! was developed in collaboration with the Cuban National Museum of Natural History. Major funding for ¡Cuba! has been provided by the Lila Wallace-Reader’s Digest Endowment Fund. Significant support for ¡Cuba! has been provided by the Ford Foundation. Generous support for ¡Cuba! has been provided by the Dalio Ocean Initiative. ¡Cuba! is proudly supported by JetBlue.
