International Day for Biological Diversity

Interesting facts about frogs. Frogs are amphibians which inhabit almost all the planet. They live in water, on the ground, on the trees, even at a depth of several meters beneath the surface in the clay layer. The largest frog on Earth is the goliath frog (Conraua goliath). Specimens can grow up to 32 cm in length from snout to vent, and weigh up to 3.25 kg. They inhabit Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea. The world’s smallest frogs live in Cuba. They have a body length from 8,5 to 12mm. They can be as little as the nail of your little finger.
The United Nations General Assembly, by its resolution 55/201 of 20 December 2000, proclaimed 22 May as The International Day for Biological Diversity, to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues. The date designated for the day was chosen to commemorate the adoption of the text of the Convention on 22 May 1992 by the Nairobi Final Act of the Conference for the Adoption of the Agreed Text of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
The day was first created by the Second Committee of the UN General Assembly in late 1993, and the UN General Assembly, by its resolution 49/119 of 19 December 1994, designated December 29th (the date of entry into force of the Convention of Biological Diversity) the International Day for Biological Diversity. However, it was difficult for many countries to plan and carry out suitable celebrations for the date of 29 December, given the number of holidays that coincide around that time of year.

Quotes & Wishes - All it needs is to be left alone All it needs is to be left alone

Biodiversity can’t be maintained by protecting a few species in a zoo, or by preserving greenbelts or national parks. To function properly, nature needs more room than that. It can maintain itself, however, without human expense, without zookeepers, park rangers, foresters or gene banks. All it needs is to be left alone.
