The United Nations has declared 2010 as the International Year of Biodiversity to focus awareness on the need to halt the loss of biodiversity globally.
The Dunedin City Council has signed on as a partner to Countdown 2010. As a partner the Council has committed to supporting the target to halt the loss of biodiversity along with increasing public awareness and participation for biodiversity conservation; better integrate biodiversity considerations in decisions; and reducing impact upon biodiversity.
The Dunedin City Council is co-ordinating a programme of events to celebrate biodiversity in the city and enhance public knowledge and understanding of biodiversity conservation and management. The events will be posted on the DCC's Biodiversity page.Or download this pdf file to see loads of cool activities planned throughout the year
