We are all connected to biodiversity from the food we eat to the clothes we wear and the air we breathe. Biodiversity knows no borders. Together we all form part of the planet’s ecosystems. The current biodiversity crisis will affect our health and livelihoods. Put simply, we face a future where food supplies are more vulnerable to pests and disease, and fresh water will become irregular or in short supply to millions.
We can protect our biodiversity by improving our understanding and knowledge of our natural environment, applying this to create natural solutions, efficient management practices, and more importantly working together to protect our environment.
Think of the many species that connect the islands of the Channel Islands across air and sea from bottlenose dolphins, birds and insects to seeds. Treating our Islands as a CI biological network will help prevent, halt, and even reverse the biodiversity crisis we all face.
This year's IIEM 2021 theme is focusing on how we are ‘connected by biodiversity’ with emphasis on biological recording, conservation research, the application of citizen science, and demonstration of sharing technology, knowledge and expertise.
