Scientists from the Smithsonian and the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago have joined with the Smithsonian’s Office of International Relations and Conservation Commons to hold a series of events with the Guyana embassy in Washington – DC to explore opportunities for future conservation work in Guyana, including the RSI and much more. Following two meetings at SI in 2017, Ambassador Riyad Insanally hosted an evening of presentations and discussion in January at the embassy, which was attended by scientists active in Guyana, members of the Guyana expatriate community, and embassy staff. On February 23rd, these and other groups gathered for an elegant celebration of Guyana’s Republic Day, with an evening reception at the Smithsonian Castle focused on biodiversity research and applications.
