Let’s Protect Biological Diversity Together on May 22 – The More the Merrier

* In supporting The International Day for Biological Diversity on May 22 and urging the citizens to protect biodiversity, the Animal Protection Office (APO) has commissioned Chi Sing Eco-conservation Foundation to conduct the Biodiversity Conservation Lecture and Seed Teacher Training Course and External Promotion Activity to let people appreciate the preciousness of biodiversity, thereby turning them into advocates and activists of this cause.

Online registration begins today (https://reurl.cc/GLVKp), all citizens with a passion for ecology-related affairs are welcome to sign up for the activities.

According to APO, the Biodiversity Seed Teacher Training Program was launched in 2006 and helped cultivate several hundred seed teachers to promote the concept of biodiversity and nature conservation in Taipei City. This year, citizens interested in ecological education are urged to attend the 4-day Biodiversity Seed Teacher Training Program held on July 20, 21, 27, and 28 in order to promote biodiversity education and skills. After finishing the course, the organizer will help the seed teachers to promote the correct conservation and biodiversity-related concepts in schools and communities.

The APO elaborated that in an effort to popularize the concept of biodiversity and make it a mainstream movement, the agency will host the 4 Biodiversity Conservation Lectures at the National Taiwan Museum starting on May 26. The lectures will be conducted from the perspective of “Food and Farming Culture”, “Satoyama Lifestyle”, “Consumption of Insects”, and “Water Resources”, probing into the intricate relations between daily diet, life, environment, and biodiversity. Through the sharing of experiences during the lectures, it seeks to increase public awareness of biodiversity, so that they can carry out conservation initiatives in everyday life.
