ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity
The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) is ASEAN’s response to the challenge of biodiversity loss. It is an intergovernmental regional centre of excellence that facilitates cooperation and coordination among the ten ASEAN Member States and with relevant national governments and regional and international organizations on the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity, as well as the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of such natural treasures.
- Video: Animals and Plants In Danger - To creatively educate a wide range of audiences on biodiversity conservation, the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) has produced a 10-minute animated video titled, Animals and Plants in Danger. The video focuses on endangered species in the ASEAN Member States and ways on how to save them from extinction. The video enumerates a number of critically endangered species in each ASEAN Member State. It also discusses destructive human activities that contribute to the worsening problem of biodiversity loss. The film ends with a call for action that is conveyed through a “wish list” made by the endangered species as their petition to humans. The video may be freely copied and distributed.
