Dear ASC'ers



Sent on behalf of the International Year of Biodiversity 2010 project coordinators

Welcome to our October bulletin celebrating the International Year of Biodiversity (IYOB).

This month Biodiversity Year gets serious, and fun.

*         Two weeks ago the UN General Assembly debated the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Secretary General announced that the world isn't meeting the 2010 targets.

*         Later this month all 193 parties to the Convention are scheduled to meet in Nagoya, Japan, to adopt a strategic plan on biodiversity and a 2050 biodiversity vision.

*         And the Sydney Moring Herald reports that the Australian government's biodiversity plan will be released later this month - more on this below in 'News'.

*         Meanwhile, back at the grass roots...there are more than 45 events taking place around the country over the month.

*         And what would you look like as a snail, fish or bat? Try Monkey Me and find discover your inner animal.

Event highlights include a crochet coral reef in Melbourne; bug hunts in WA; breakfast with birds in NSW; David Suzuki across the country; following Mawson across Antarctica with Tim Jarvis in Adelaide; and, biodiversity of soil in Queensland.

This month, you can also have some fun trying the Monkey Me feature on the International Year of Biodiversity website. Share it with friends-if you dare.

For full details of events and activities near you, visit www.biodiversity2010.org.au<http://www.biodiversity2010.org.au>.

The website is open for events, blogs, essays, photos and more. Please use it to promote your own events and ideas. It is the only source of event listings for this bulletin.

We are keen to communicate with anyone with an interest in biodiversity. Please pass this bulletin on to others you think might like to receive it.

Our next bulletin will cover November events.

Kind regards,

The biodiversity hub: have your say

Our website (http://www.biodiversity2010.org.au/) is a 'biodiversity hub' for events in Australia where you can promote your biodiversity news and events, and share stories and ideas. We encourage everyone with an interest in biodiversity to contribute to the website, and to hold events to promote biodiversity during 2010.

You can 'Add an Event' at http://www.biodiversity2010.org.au/biodiversity-events/add-an-event/. Your event is then added to our searchable calendar and distributed via this news bulletin.

You may also like to create a 'story', to tell everyone about your biodiversity activities. You can also add photos (via Flickr), or videos (via YouTube) or interact with us directly on Twitter (http://twitter.com/bio2010aus).

We look forward to seeing your contribution soon!

News
World misses biodiversity targets and meets to set new ones

The world has missed the 2010 target of a significant reduction in the rate of biodiversity loss, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told the UN General Assembly on 22 September. According to AFP...

'Conserving the planet's species and habitats - and the goods and services they provide - is central to sustainable development and the Millennium Development Goals,' the Secretary General said.

"The global decline in biodiversity is actually accelerating...Science tells us that our actions have pushed extinctions to up to 1,000 times the natural background rate. The reason is simple: human activities. Yours, mine, everyone's."

The debate was a precursor to a meeting of the 192 countries signed up to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity. The signatories will meet in Nagoya, Japan, later this month.

The meeting's agenda includes a range of 2020 targets to protect biodiversity, including targets to slow habitat loss and conserve waterways.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the Australian government is expected to make public a new National Biodiversity Plan in the coming weeks.

The Herald previously reported that the plan is expected to contain 10 national targets to help reduce  loss of biodiversity, including a target to reduce the impact of feral animals by 10 per cent by 2015.

Meanwhile the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has warned that Earth was hurtling towards a mass extinction.

Out of 44,838 species on the IUCN's famous "Red List", at least 16,928 are threatened with being wiped out, it said. You can read about the "Red List" and meet the 'species of the day' at http://www.iucnredlist.org/

David Suzuki touring Australia

One of the great advocates of biodiversity conservation, the internationally renowned scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster David Suzuki, is touring Australia in October. In 'The Legacy Lecture', David will present a critical and candid exploration of a period of human history which includes his own life's journey-which has overlapped and converged with many of the most important social, scientific, cultural and political developments of the past seventy years. His focus also acknowledges the wisdom of his grandparents and moves forward through to the promise held in the birth of his new grandson.

To find out when David is talking in your area visit www.biodiversity2010.org.au/?s=David+Suzuki&search=GO<http://www.biodiversity2010.org.au/?s=David+Suzuki&search=GO>.

Six thousand new marine species discovered

Also, a global network of researchers engaged in a ten-year initiative to assess and explain the past, present, and future diversity, distribution, and abundance of marine life have released a 64-page report that reveals an abundance of marine life, with six thousand new species discovered. For more information on the report visit http://www.coml.org/ or you can listen to an ABC interview with Nic Bax, Chairman of Census of Marine Life, Australia at http://www.abc.net.au/rn/breakfast/stories/2010/3029418.htm

Crocheted coral reef in Melbourne

In Upwey, in the Dandenong Ranges on the outskirts of Melbourne, you can visit The Melbourne Reef. It's a fusion of higher mathematics, women's handicrafts, marine biology and environmental activism. Actually-it's a crocheted coral reef, with contributions from Melbournians ranging in age from three to 93. See how it has come together on the blog at http://melbournesatellitereef.blogspot.com. The exhibition opens on 9 October.
