International Day for Biological Diversity
Location: Caribbean wide
Between 1994 and 2000, Biodiversity Day was observed on 29 December. But in December 2000 it was agreed that, from the year 2001, the Day would be observed on 22 May. This marks the date of adoption of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
Biodiversity is the variety of all life forms: the different plants, animals and micro-organisms, their genes and the ecosystems of which they are a part.

Biodiversity and Agriculture
Agriculture is a key example of how human activities have profound impacts on the ecosystems of our planet.
This year’s theme for the International Day for Biological Diversity (IBD), “Biodiversity and Agriculture,” seeks to highlight the importance of sustainable agriculture not only to preserve biodiversity, but also to ensure that we will be able to feed the world, maintain agricultural livelihoods, and enhance human well being into the 21st century and beyond.
