Biodiversity Day - 22 May 2021
The 22 May 2021 marks the International Day for Biological Diversity, or Biodiversity Day!
The Biodiversity Day 2021 slogan this year is: “We’re part of the solution”. The slogan was chosen to be a continuation of the momentum generated last year under the over-arching theme, “Our solutions are in nature”, which served as a reminder that biodiversity remains the answer to several sustainable development challenges. From nature-based solutions to climate, health issues, food and water security, and sustainable livelihoods, biodiversity is the foundation upon which we can build back better.

The diversity of life forms, so numerous we have yet to identify most of them, is the greatest wonder of this planet.
E O Wilson, ecologist
It is that range of biodiversity that we must care for - the whole thing - rather than just one or two stars.
Sir David Attenborough
Whatungarongaro te tangata toitu te whenua - As man disappears from sight, the land remains.
