Biological diversity is the resource upon which families, communities, nations and future generations depend. It is the link between all organisms on Earth, binding each into an interdependent ecosystem, in which all species have their role. It is the Web of Life.
Biodiversity underpins the health of the planet and has a direct impact on our lives: it is now widely recognized that the loss of biodiversity is one of the greatest threats to world stability and security .
Conservation work is therefore a top priority.
