The United Nations has proclaimed May 22 The International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues.
At the Center for Biological Diversity, they believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, they work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. Through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.
Jungle Jenny and The Center For Biological Diversity wants those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.
