The National Office of Environmental Management and Biodiversity Conservation, in conjunction with the Office for Climate Change and the National Environmental Information System (SIAN), published a Spanish booklet on “Climate Change and Biodiversity,” in honor of the International Day for Biological Diversity. The booklet can be found at: http://www.ambiente.gov.ar/archivos/web/CCB/File/052207_dia_bio2007.pdf

The Department of Biodiversity and Experimental Biology and the Faculty of Physical and Natural Sciences of the University of Buenos Aires, presented on 22 May, the Secretariat’s video on climate change and biodiversity to students and staff in order to promote awareness of this increasingly important and complex issue.

The Secretariat of Environmental Policy, of the provincial government of Buenos Aires, commemorated IBD by issuing a new release about the endangered ruddy-headed goose, an exclusively South American species with only 1000 individuals left. This was to help raise awareness of how climate change is affecting the local biodiversity.
