Past events

  22 May 2010 : International Day for Biodiversity 2010
The main events marking the International Day for Biodiversity took place at Jardin d’Essai du Hamma. This event, held at the botanical gardens, had activities for everyone. Children were able to go on a guided tour of the grounds and were also able to participate in activities such as drawing and taking a quiz on biodiversity. There were workshops for children concerning gardening and ornithology and a film was presented. For adults, there was a conference at the Horticultural school which marked Biodiversity Day. Speakers at the conference discussed the types of species found across Algeria and also discussed the importance of maintaining them. Later, all participants were able to plant trees and shrubs in the garden.

Autralia's Final Report for the International Year of Biodiversity 2010

The Australian Biodiversity 2010 website is a ‘biodiversity hub’ for events in Australia. Apply for funding, promote your biodiversity news and events, share your stories and ideas.

Activities for the International Year of Biodiversity (report by the Australian Government)

Biodiversity in Australia.

The Western Australia Government's Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) has as its vision a healthy, diverse and well-managed environment. DEC employs some 1900 staff and manages more than 27 million hectares of lands and waters that make up Western Australia's system of national parks, marine parks and other protected areas, World Heritage sites, Ramsar wetlands and a renowned biodiversity 'hotspot' in the State's south-west. DEC carries out a great deal of biodiversity conservation work such as biodiversity mapping, the identification and recovery of threatened species, and many decades of widely respected scientific research.

The International Year of Biodiversity will be featured in the following:
  • LANDSCOPE magazine, an award-winning quarterly conservation, parks and wildlife publication now in its 25th year;
  • Environment and Conservation News, a fortnightly electronic bulletin to DEC staff, volunteers and subscribers throughout Western Australia giving updates on important projects and achievements';
  • Nuytsia, a journal produced by the Western Australian Herbarium, which resides within DEC, providing original scientific papers on systematic botany, with a particular focus on the flora of Western Australia;
  • Conservation Science Western Australia, a journal of papers by scientists and technical officers employed by DEC, produced to foster awareness, understanding and support for the science on which the department's nature conservation and natural resource management activities are based;
  • The History of the Western Australian Herbarium, a book to be published in June 2010;
  • The DEC will have a new Biodiversity Conservation Science building, which will house the Western Australian Herbarium and which is due to be officially opened late in 2010.

  The Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE)
This year, the Department of Sustainability and Environment is supporting the International Year of Biodiversity by raising awareness of the vital role that our natural living environment plays within Victoria.
Furthermore, DSE is recognising the International year of Biodiversity by integrating existing metropolitan and regional campaigns and events to enhance biodiversity in Victoria. These include:

Zoos Victoria
There are a range of other ways Zoos Victoria are helping you to help biodiversity this year.

  Act 4 Nature
Act 4 Nature is our latest campaign alongside our partners, Department of Sustainability and Environment, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Parks Victoria and Museum Victoria. In this year-long campaign celebrating the international Year of Biodiversity participants will pledge to take part in a particular target action each month, the outcomes of which promote conservation and sustainability.

  Don’t Palm us Off
The aim of this community campaign is to achieve mandatory labeling of palm oil in Australia, so we can then drive a consumer market for sustainable palm oil and help save the rainforests in Asia in particular which support animals such as the Sumatran tiger and the orang-utan. Over 80,000 people have signed our petition in support, and the campaign has inspired a bill to be entered into parliament which will be considered in May. Head to the website to find out how you can support the bill.

  They’re Calling on You
Africa’s primates are calling on you to recycle your old mobile phones. By recycling your phone you help to lessen the demand for coltan, a metal mined within gorilla habitat and help raise funds to support primate conservation.

BIOdiverseCITY

1–18 April 2010 artists engage in the webs and the intertwinement of life in our urban worlds

Biodiversity: the diversity (number and variety of species) of plant and animal life within a region.

2010: The United Nations International Year of BIODIVERSITY

BIOdiverseCity: a group exhibition of contemporary art featuring 20-30 artists living and working in Sydney, Australia. Each artist has been asked to explore the biodiversity, and issues of biodiversity, of the environments that they traverse in the routines of their daily lives. From the parks and waterways, to the backyards and neighbourhoods, no stone will be left unturned (figuratively speaking) as artists engage in the webs and the intertwinement of life in our urban worlds.

More information / contact

The Perth Zoo will promote the International Year of Biodiversity to schools and their target audience. The Australian Museum will have an exhibition running from May to September, and will promote the International Year of Biodiversity by producing promotional materials in the form of leaflets and flyers.
