The United Nations has proclaimed May 22 The International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues. When first created by the Second Committee of the UN General Assembly in late 1993, 29 December (the date of entry into force of the Convention of Biological Diversity), was designated The International Day for Biological Diversity.
Costa Rica is home to nearly 5% of the world’s biodiversity! As a rescue center, we see the issues that wildlife face in today’s ever growing human landscapes – from roads, buildings, power lines, and the list goes on, biodiversity is under constant threat. As a institution that speaks for animals we understand the importance of this international day. Want to help? You can, support the Toucan Rescue Ranch and spread awareness about issues that your community faces. Get involved, stay informed!
