Posolstvá
Ľudia sú súčasťou veľkej rozmanitosti prírody a majú silu ju buď chrániť, alebo ničiť.

Biodiverzita, rozmanitosť života na Zemi, je nevyhnutná na udržanie sietí a systémov života, ktoré nám poskytujú všetko spojené so zdravím, blahobytom, potravou, palivami a životne dôležitými službami, od ktorých náš život závisí.

Ľudská činnosť spôsobuje, že rozmanitosť života na Zemi sa stráca veľmi rýchlym tempom. Straty sú nevratné, všetkých nás ochudobňujú a poškodzujú život podporujúce systémy, na ktoré sa spoliehame každý deň. Ale môžeme im zabrániť.

Rok 2010 je Medzinárodným rokom biodiverzity. Porozmýšľajte nad úspechmi, ktoré sme dosiahli, aby sme ochránili biodiverzitu a zamerajte sa na naliehavosť výziev, ktoré pred nami v budúcnosti stoja. Nastal čas na činy.

  Biodiverzita je život
Biodiverzita je náš život

Spojené národy vyhlásili rok 2010 za Medzinárodný rok biodiverzity. Tento rok je oslavou života na Zemi a významu biologickej rôznorodosti pre naše životy. Svet je vyzvaný, aby podnikol také kroky v roku 2010, ktoré zachovajú rozmanitosť života na Zemi – biodiverzitu.
