International Day for Biological Diversity


Yesterday, May 22 was International Day for Biological Diversity. The general public is finally becoming aware that complex ecosystems are crucial to all life on earth, us included, but that many modern human practices are highly destructive of this complexity. Governments are finally recognizing the issue and quite rightly getting pressured by their communities. The Convention on Biological Diversity has been ratified by 196 nations with its aim for "the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources"

The theme in 2022 is “Building a shared future for all life”. Fitting within the context of the ongoing United Nations Decade on Restoration, which highlights that biodiversity is the answer to several sustainable development challenges, the slogan conveys the message that biodiversity is the foundation upon which we can build back better.
