2010 the International Year of Biodiversity

The UN has declared 2010 as the International Year of Biodiversity.

“Throughout 2010 countless initiatives will be organized to disseminate information, promote biodiversity conservation and encourage organizations, institutions, companies and individuals to take direct action to stop the loss of biological diversity worldwide.” International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

The IUCN is the world’s oldest and largest global environmental network. It has recently created an eye-catching ‘Species of the Day’ button to place on websites. This links directly to their new look Red List of Threatened Species webpage.

Our new 11th edition of the Times Concise Atlas of the World features a Biodiversity spread among its World Today pages. It has been compiled to show a global view of biodiversity, its value, trends and conservation. Click on image to enlarge.

Why not look at the IUCN website and add their Species of the Day button to your own blog/website.
