Virtual Biodiversity Conference Needs Your Input

20 February 2006

Virtual Curitiba ConferenceThe Virtual Curitiba Biodiversity Conference is now underway and stakeholders are invited to share their ideas on how to meet 2010 targets. Botanic gardens are major contributors to meeting several of the targets as developed in the GLobal Strategy for Plant Conservation, although there is often a tendency to underestimate their own contribution. They are unique in having a 'public face' and can often inspire the conservation world to share information and reach wider audiences, as well as acting as a conduit of information from conservation scientists to the general public all around the world.

You can take part in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese and Russian and it's very easy to sign up. Anyone with internet access can take part. So click on the link below and share your ideas right now!
