The free outdoor exhibition, which has shown in Paris last year, is on display from November 11 to December 8 2014 and offers visitors a world tour of biodiversity hotspots, and a glimpse of the actions carried out to conserve them. It can be seen along the fence on Mrs Macquaries Road, between the Lion Gate Lodge, Henry Lawson Gate and Victoria Gate, Royal Botanic Garden Sydney The Sydney Congress is an 8 day global forum on protected areas of the planet, bringing together people from all over the world to target fairer and better ways to conserve natural environments affected by human activity. 

 The Agence Française de Développement (AFD), is a public development-finance institution that delivers the French government’s development aid policies specifically to alleviate poverty and foster sustainable development while protecting the planet. Since 2007, AFD has partnered The Critical Ecosystem partnership fund (CEPF) which targets biodiversity hotspots – the Earth’s most biologically rich yet threatened areas, by providing grants to non government and private sector projects. The large scale photographic project 35 Wonders is presented for all the Sydney public to enhance their knowledge of critical areas of the globe and engage in the progress and plans to slow the loss of biodiversity on the planet. The AFD and CEPF would like to thank the Royal Botanic Garden and Domain Trust for hosting the exhibition.
