- This past spring, the United Nations Environment Program declared 2010 to be the Year of Biodiversity. The goal is to unite 40 international organizations to assess the loss of biodiversity on Earth now and what to do in the future to keep Earth life from dying out in the face of climate change, loss of habitats and onslaughts from pesticides and other toxins in the environment. The 2010 Year of Biodiversity slogan is “Life in harmony, into the future.”
