    The theme of this year’s International Day for Biological Diversity, which is held annually on 22 May, is ‘Island Biodiversity’. This theme was chosen to coincide with the UN General Assembly’s designation of 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States. As the Convention on Biological Diversity has stated: “Islands and their surrounding near-shore marine areas constitute unique ecosystems often comprising plant and animal species that are endemic – found nowhere else on Earth. The legacy of a unique evolutionary history, these ecosystems are irreplaceable treasures. They are also key to the livelihood, economy, well-being and cultural identity of 600 million islanders – one-tenth of the world’s population.”
