Det gjelder livet!
I Naturmangfoldåret oppfordres alle til å samarbeide og gjennomføre gode tiltak for naturen. Økt bevissthet om naturmangfold kan gi økt forståelse for hva som trengs for å nå nasjonale og internasjonale mål. Markeringsåret gir oss mulighet til å løfte begrepet "naturmangfold" høyere opp på den politiske dagsorden.
