Biodiversity is an “inheritance” that we have to preserve and to hand over to the future generations. It forms the web of life of which we are an integral part and upon which we so fully depend. The loss of biodiversity is a serious problem that our planet faces. Therefore, a number of international and multilateral conventions aim to protect biodiversity.
Convention on Biological Diversity - UN
The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands
Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats - Bern Convention
Convention on International Trade in Endagered Species of Wlid Fauna and Flora - CITES
Convention on Migratory Species - Bonn Convention
