Alameda Biodome Project To Form Centrepiece Of Education Zone
The Gibraltar Botanic Gardens has thanked local sponsors who have contributed towards a project to build a biodome as part of its new education zone.
Local businesses, individuals and families have already made donations towards a bespoke construction which will become the hub for the educational activities hosted by the gardens. Plaques recording these donations were unveiled at an event on Thursday afternoon.
The Director of the Botanic Gardens, Dr Keith Bensusan, said that he was proud of the Alameda’s various educational projects and added that the current resources had now outgrown their purpose.
“We decided that, since this work has always been for the community, we would try to raise funds from within the community for this project,” he said.
He highlighted generous donations from Eroski and HSE Consulting and said Casais and Ramboll were in the process of “making key contributions.”
Dr Bensusan also thanked the architect of the project Ruth Massias Greenberg for “her incredible enthusiasm” and the Rupani family.
