Happy Biodiversity Day!


Hugh Paxton’s Blog is one of a small number of people who has remembered that today is UN designated Biodiversity Day! My beloved wife has remembered it, too, and has put together this Happy Biodiversity Day card! Have a happy and biodiverse sort of day!

That bit of cheery information from Katy Daigle. Associated Press.

“We’ve gone from horrible to bad.” Dennis vanEngelsdorp, professor at the university of Maryland and director of the Bee Informed Partnership speaking about a mild recovery in US bee populations after a dramatic and alarming decline.
