The United Nations declared 2010 to be the International Year of Biodiversity. It massages

Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth, is essential to sustaining the living networks and systems that provide us all with health, wealth, food, fuel and the vital services our lives depend on. Human activity is causing the diversity of life on Earth to be lost at a greatly accelerated rate. These losses are irreversible, impoverish us all and damage the life support systems we rely on everyday. But we can prevent them.

UN urges world society to  take action in 2010 to safeguard the variety of life on earth: biodiversity.

  • The thing that really strikes you about driving around Malaysia is the way they’ve turned most of it into palm plantations.

    I’ve only been to a small amount of Indonesia, but the thing that struck me there was the relative lack of trees. Of course, other bits might be different, it was only one smallish island.

  • Assalaamu’alaikum IIP AlBanjary

    Terima kasih kerana sudah berkunjung ke laman saya dan mengharapkan adanya jalinan silaturahmi dalam memulakan tahun 2010.

    Alam sekitar dan kehidupan yang menghuninya amat penting. Memelihara dan memulihara fauna dan flora menjadi tanggungjawab kita semua agar bumi ini sentiasa kekeal hijau, subur dan dapat dinikmati oleh generasi akan datang.

    kepupusan pelbagai kehidupan yang dipaparkan seperti contoh yang dihadapi di Indonesia juga dialami oleh kebanyakkan negara di dunia ini. Jika tidak ada keperihatinan penduduk dalam lingkungan tersebut hal ini akan semakin parah dan pastinya kita hidup dalam dunia yang serba sulit sifat kehidupannya.

    Salam mesra selalu dari sarikei, Sarawak, Malaysia.
