International Day for Biological Diversity

22nd May 2017

Event Overview

Celebrating Biodiversity can be great fun, especially if you take this opportunity to visit a farmers market or allotments in your local area to try new types of produce with your class; perhaps try one of the rainbow of colors of carrots out there that aren’t orange! Biodiversity can bring a great new experience to your table.

Another way of celebrating biodiversity is to join a local park clean-up team and help to remove invasive plants from your local environment. These teams of volunteers will gather to remove plants that are impacting the local fauna’s biodiversity by taking over natural grow areas.

Another way to celebrate the International Day for Biological Diversity is to simply get out into the world and enjoy all the different types of life your local area offers. Even a local park can have an amazing variety of life you’ve never noticed, from the insects crawling through the grass and dirt, to the flowers we so clumsily lump together as ‘wildflowers’.

Whatever the case, get out there and celebrate the diversity of our natural world, not just on the International Day for Biological Diversity, but every day!
