A large portion of globally important biodiversity is found in a relatively small number of places. By effectively protecting and managing these outstanding “legacy landscapes”, while respecting the human rights and needs of local people, we can conserve a significant share of the earth’s precious biodiversity.

22 May marks International Day for Biological Diversity
Today is an opportune moment to reflect on the importance of the earth’s vast biodiversity. For many of us, protecting species from extinction is a non-negotiable moral responsibility. But the reality of today’s rapidly changing world means there are also pragmatic – and urgent – reasons to commit funding and political will to biodiversity protection.
Below, we outline five reasons to save species, secure habitats, and preserve invaluable ecosystems.
A New Dimension in Nature Protection
We need to safeguard the world’s most outstanding biodiversity for humanity! Natural habitats and biodiversity are crucial for all life on Earth. They are the backbone of our planet’s ecosystem services, providing us with fresh water, clean air, and fertile soil to grow our food while storing carbon dioxide and offering life-saving protection from natural disasters.
