The 22nd May 2020 is International Day for Biological Diversity and this year, the theme is “our solutions are in nature”.
The UN proclaimed such a day to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues.
Here’s the incredible Sir David Attenborough explaining what biodiversity is:
The Council of the EU has produced a good video, too, called Help Protect Biodiversity and it will protect us
The theme “Our solutions are in nature” emphasises the importance of working together at all levels to build a future of life in harmony with nature.
2020 is a year to reflect, grab the moment and come up with creative and innovative solutions. We all need to work to stop biodiversity loss, for all people and all life on Earth.
Actions for Animals
