International Year of Biodiversity 2010

Biodiversity is life, Biodiversity is our life

International Year of Biodiversity 2010

Humans are part of nature’s rich diversity and have the power to protect or destroy it.

Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth, is essential to sustaining the living networks and systems that provide us all with health, wealth, food, fuel and the vital services our lives depend on.

Human activity is causing the diversity of life on Earth to be lost at a greatly accelerated rate. These losses are irreversible, impoverish us all and damage the life support systems we rely on everyday. But we can prevent them.

2010 is the International Year of Biodiversity. Let’s reflect on our achievements to safeguard biodiversity and focus on the urgency of our challenge for the future. Now is the time to act.

International Year of Biodiversity 2010 programme was initiated by the United Nations through UNEP. Attention, support, and participation of all nations in the world are expected to achieve the mission.
