Biological Diversity Int’l Day observed


International Day for Biological Diversity observed Monday across the globe with the theme ‘Biodiversity and Sustainable Tourism.’ The day had a opportunity to raise awareness of the important contribution of sustainable tourism both to economic growth and to the conservation of biodiversity.
Diversity in species, ecosystems and landscapes attracted tourism and promotes economic growth. In turn, a well-managed tourist sector could helped reduce threats to key wildlife populations, and could maintained or increased biodiversity, through tourism revenue.
This year theme had been chosen to coincide with the observance of 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development and could contributed to ongoing initiatives such as the Sustainable Tourism Programme.—APP
