From the Year of Biodiversity to the Year of Forests

31 December 2010

Logo of the International Year of BiodiversityThe year that has just ended was declared as the International Year of Biodiversity by the United Nations, with the aim of encouraging organizations, agencies, companies and individuals to put into action activities addressed to slow down the constant loss of biodiversity that is taking place in the whole planet.

Logo of the International Year of ForestsThe United Nations has declared 2011 the International Year of Forests. The purpose, in this case, is to focus on the sustainable management of forests, on their preservation and on sustainable development in all kinds of woods existing on our planet.

Biodiversity preservation and forest protection are strongly related. The first steps of Fragas do Mandeo, between the years 2010 and 2011, go in that direction. If we think globally and we want to act locally, we have to move forward in the land stewardship of local natural heritage, of native woods and rivers, of the coastline and the sea. This way, we’ll preserve habitats and biodiversity for present and future generations.

Happy New Year’s Eve
