This year, the Turks & Caicos National Trust leads the celebration of the month-long celebration of Biodiversity Day with its campaign called “Selfie for Biodiversity”. The National Trust is calling on the general public to submit “selfies” that show commitment and efforts to protect biodiversity.
Photos should highlight TCI’s wild flora and fauna, various ecosystems, even efforts, campaigns and programs covering diverse topics under biodiversity such as coastal clean-ups, tree-planting activities, fisheries and tourism, among others. This is in line with this year’s theme: Mainstreaming Biodiversity; Sustaining People and their Livelihoods.
The National Trust challenges groups and individuals to heighten their interest on biodiversity issues and support efforts aimed at the protection of biodiversity.
Biodiversity is not only a variety of life, but also a way of life. That is why there is a need to take charge of protecting biodiversity. Sometimes, we only bask in the beauty of nature, but we rarely take efforts to protect the wildlife endemic to the Turks & Caicos and their natural habitats.
Take a selfie. Capture biodiversity at its best and inspire people to act.
You can post selfies at our Facebook page, search for Turks & Caicos National Trust. The best photos will be featured at the exhibit planned for World Environment Day in June.
