May 22 is the International Day for Biological Diversity. This year’s theme is “Biodiversity and Sustainable Tourism”. Diversity in species, ecosystems and landscapes attracts tourism and promotes economic growth. In turn, a well-managed tourist sector can help reduce threats to key wildlife populations, and can maintain or increase biodiversity, through tourism revenue. The biggest threat to biodiversity comes from climate change, caused by heat-trapping greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere.
