Did you know that today is the International Day for Biological Diversity? Organised by the United Nations, this event falls on the 22nd May each year, with the aim of increasing understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues.
As this year's theme is Island Biodiversity, we would like to invite you to explore the islands of the world on ARKive.
Dive in to the
warm waters of the Indian Ocean or explore the volcanic islands of the 'ring
of fire' in the North and South Pacific, learn what makes these ecosystems so
unique and discover endemic species found nowhere else on Earth.
