IUCN Director General speaks of her hopes for the International Year of Biodiversity

2010 is the International Year of Biodiversity. It's an opportunity to find real solutions to safeguard the natural environment which mankind depends upon. IUCN is playing a key role in pushing for immediate action to protect species, ecosystems and natural resources before it's too late. IUCN's Director General, Julia Marton-Lefèvre, says that, coming straight after Copenhagen, the International Year of Biodiversity is very significant.
