Brochure about biodiversity
Biodiversity and its significance for humanity are under-recognised values and hence underestimated. We have published a brochure to bring biodiversity closer to everyone. It is important to be aware that we need biodiversity and to know what endangers it. Together we can protect it better.

A brooch of Life Naturaviva project with otter
The luxury of life on the planet in all its forms and interactions – this is BIODIVERSITY. Without it, there is no air that we breathe, no water that we drink and no food that we eat. There is a bumblebee in the cherry blossom; there is an earthworm in the soil, a lark above the field and a minnow in the stream. There is also an otter, which crosses the dune in a dawn and leaves its signature in the sand. Let’s sign the commitment to preserve biodiversity! Let’s sign for life!
