The oldest animals at the Biodome

The Biodome is celebrating 25 years of existence, and some of its denizens are even older than that, having been at the Alcan aquarium that closed in 1991.

Another theme came out this week about the Espace pour la vie: the city organization that runs the Biodome as well as three other institutions in the area is being reorganized, and both Michel Labrecque, who now runs the botanical garden, and Pierre Bourque, a previous mayor who began his career in horticulture, are concerned that the change will mean a loss of knowledge and research at the garden.
