The United Nations have proclaimed 2010 to be the International Year of Biodiversity.
According to their website accessed 8/3/2010
The International Year of Biodiversity is a unique opportunity to increase understanding of the vital role that biodiversity plays in sustaining life on Earth.
By drawing our attention to and celebrating the huge variety of animals and plants that exist on Earth, the UN is hoping to both educate and inspire us to celebrate and protect the planet and all the precious life on it.
It contains a wealth of inspiration and ideas about how we can celebrate and take action! Take a look…you might be inspired 🙂
