Arrow World Biodiversity Day

Biodiversity is defined as enrichment of flora anf fauna i.e. plants and animal species on the face of the earth. I.4 billion species of animals and plants have been recorded but many r yet undiscovered and unpublished. Earth has a very large no. of the animals and plants which are beauty of this planet and they have a lot of economic and ecological significance for mankind. But during the last few centuries human activities r destroying the biodiversity. Due to rapid industralization, urbanization, pollution, global warming, natural catastropes ,deforestration, there is extinction of large no species and most valuable and rare species of animals and plants have vanished from the surface of the earth. so in order to conserve these biological resources a subject called "Conservation Biology" has emerged as a crisis discipline during the 1970,s. Now a days in order to conserve the wild life and species different conferences, seminars and symposiums r held in effort to save the world,s biodiversity. These r for to bring the awareness among the people about the importance of this biodiversity and threats which it is facing because of their activities. so 22nd May is world,s biodiversity day. Let us promise that we will become eenvironmental friendly,coz these animals and plants r our friends becuase they provide us food, shelter,clean air to breath, luxuries of life and recreation.Threat to biodiversity is threat to animal and plants and also to human beings because we r dependent on them 4 our needs. We should plant more trees and do not kill and capture these creatures of God in an inhuman way. We should make efforts to conserve and enhance the beauty of this only life planent...........Earth.

Biodiversity Day — climate change



WILDLIFE is a vital component of nature. We need to share this planet with it”, says Zohare Ali Sharif, a leading wildlife scientist who studies animal behaviour. We witness, almost every other day, enthusiasm and zeal of people belonging to different age groups on various days, e.g. Valentine’s Day, Friendship Day and New Year Day, throughout the year, but hardly a few, perhaps only those who are engaged in one way or the other, know about the Biodiversity Day, or more precisely they even do not have nodding acquaintance with the term ‘biodiversity’, its benefits and threats faced by it.

Biodiversity, in a simplest way, means: totality of all life forms, i.e., micro-organisms (e.g. viruses, bacteria, protists), fungi, algae, plants and animals, and the places inhabited by them: habitats (e.g. forests, deserts, ocean and rivers), and all the genes, entities of inheritance that determine how a life form is going to be, they contain.

Instead of rendering a number of valuable services to mankind, people ask why save biodiversity? The answer is quite simple: to save ourselves. We are not the whole and sole custodians of this planet, we merely are a part of it, and share its resources with other vast array of life forms; thus, we do not have any right to exploit it at the expense of others, for others are as vital as we are in the ecological balance of this planet.

The International Day for Biological Diversity (or World Biodiversity Day) is a UN-sanctioned international holiday for the promotion of biodiversity issues, currently held on May 22. This year’s theme as adopted by the Convention on Biological Diversity is ‘Biodiversity and Climate Change’, which complements the designation of 2007 as the International Polar Year and coincides with Unep’s World Environment Day theme of Climate Change.

In fact, out of countless detrimental stressors to biodiversity, much heed is paid to climate change, for it has direct as well as indirect effects on ecosystems and biodiversity. Modification in the food chain, food web; alterations and destructions in habitats; hampering the developmental process and life cycle are amongst the indirect effects causing loss of biodiversity owing to drastic change in the climate pattern whereas increased temperature and exposure to UV radiation has proved to have brought several life forms to the verge of extinction.

Thus, holding biodiversity day is an endeavour to increase the awareness among the people about importance, significance and other issues related with biodiversity. Scientists and environmentalists and conservation biologists are striving hard to preserve and conserve the biotic spectrum of this planet , but this arduous journey towards the accomplishment of the above-stated goal could not be completed until and unless other people irrespective of their age and profession contribute equally, and join hands with the experts to make this planet a living paradise
