18 Jan La Barben, 5th French zoo to join the Global Coalition “United for Biodiversity”!
We are proud to join the Global Coalition for Biodiversity, whose message is clear: we are facing a planetary emergency, the collapse of biodiversity, caused by human actions. However, we belong to nature, we depend on nature, and nature needs us like never before …
Indeed, did you know that more than a million plant and animal species are threatened with extinction in the near future? At issue: deforestation, hunting and poaching, pollution, climate change, overexploitation of natural resources … This is why the European Commission launched this coalition, in order to make citizens of the world aware of the protection of nature. The aim is also to call for ambitious decisions to be taken at the 15th Conference of the Parties (COP 15) of the United Nations Convention on Biodiversity. This international meeting is expected to be held in China in 2021.
As our park has long been committed to the protection of biodiversity, through awareness raising and actions on the ground, joining this coalition was obvious, and we are eager to welcome you to share this commitment!
