World Biodiversity Day

World Biodiversity Day was created to inform and celebrate biological diversity in the world and emphasize its importance in our survival. It was originally proclaimed on December 29 by the UN General Assembly and subsequently changed to May 22, to commemorate the adoption of the Convention at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. 2023 is a particularly special year with the recent adoption of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework at COP 15, where a total of 188 governments committed to address the ongoing loss of terrestrial and marine biodiversity. 

Celebrate the day by enjoying the following collection of artwork by AFC members. Many are for sale with a portion of proceeds pledged to conservation.
