Biodiversity Day 2000

Theme 2001: Biodiversity and Management of Invasive Alien Species

The date of the International Day for Biological Diversity is 29 December. The Theme of this year is "Biodiversity and Management of Invasive Alien Species".

The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity invites Parties to the Convention and other Governments and related organizations to observe the International Day by organizing special events, lectures, presentations and other substantive activities to mark the occasion. The International Day for Biological Diversity is an opportunity to strengthen people's commitment and actions for the conservation of the world's biological diversity.

Today, there is a wide recognition of the importance and value of biological diversity. But much more is needed to increase public awareness of the importance of biological diversity with the ultimate goal of stopping the ever-increasing loss!

The theme for this year's International Day is "Biodiversity and Management of Alien Invasive Species". Invasive alien species are considered to be the most important threat to biological diversity loss after habitat destruction. All ecosystems - from forests and grasslands to marshes and coastal zones - are vulnerable to invasive alien species. Every country in the world has experienced invasions. Isolated areas such as islands are particularly vulnerable.
