To celebrate the International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) on 22 May 2016, the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) of China is going to organize a series of events.
It has become a tradition for MEP to organize activities nationwide on this day to raise public awareness of biodiversity conservation. This year, the IDB coincides with the 60th anniversary of the founding of China’s Nature Reserve System, and both events will be highlighted. Some 300 representatives from government, nature reserve management departments, international organizations, academia, business, NGOs and the media will join the celebrations.
