May 22nd is the International Day for Biological Diversity, celebrate with a virtual extravaganza featuring scientists, explorers, and conservationists from across the globe!
The Global Biodiversity Festival is a virtual weekend for the general public, with the simple goal of shining a spotlight on biodiversity loss. This is a truly global event that will bounce us around the globe as we celebrate the weird and the wonderful, highlight the challenges life faces, and some good news conservation stories. From the 21st – 23rd of May, we’ll share the diverse stories and challenges of scientists, explorers, conservationists, filmmakers, and policymakers on the frontlines of the race to save the incredible variety of life on our planet…and ourselves.
We launched the Global Biodiversity Festival in May 2020 with hundreds of speakers from around the world, published an incredible book, and raised money for several conservation organizations. This year, we’re pushing the boundaries of what a virtual festival can be and creating a truly global event! We’ll be broadcasting live for 72 hours straight, with 150+ speakers spanning the globe and exploring biodiversity from every angle.
Join the Toucan Rescue Ranch, among dozens of other amazing speakers, as we share a free educational tour of our sanctuary and rescue center. Plus! A special presentation about One Health with Vet Supervisor, Ana María Villada Rosales!
