Last week Monday, 22 May, was the International Day for Biological Diversity and Let It Grow participants celebrated it all over the world. From Bangladesh to Brazil; EAZA, BGCI, Ecsite members and other institutions organised events and activities to celebrate the beauty of biodiversity. Families, schools, and even armadillos all joined in the fun. Below are a few examples of the many initiatives taken by Let It Grow participants. A huge thank you to everyone who joined in the celebrations. What a great way to Let It Grow!
