World Biodiversity Day

May 2016

This Day was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in 1995 in a special resolution (№ A / RES / 49/119) based on the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), which was held in 1994. The mission of the World Biodiversity Day is to draw public attention to the problem of the permanent disappearance of many species of flora and fauna. The Biodiversity of the planet continues to shrink, and the ecological balance is still changing. About 60% of the ecological system is degraded or used recklessly, resulting in biodiversity loss and other serious consequences that can be redoubled next 50 years.
