ASEAN Champions of Biodiversity

Biodiversity loss can lead to human extinction. Unfortunately, this threat has not attracted enough leadership, public and media attention to generate a concerted effort to halt the rate of biodiversity loss. This lack of awareness is attributed to the dearth of information campaigns and materials on the values of biodiversity.

To help fill this gap, the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) and its partners are launching the ASEAN Champions of Biodiversity – a recognition program for outstanding achievements in biodiversity Conservation and advocacy in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam).
The program is aimed at generating greater leadership, public and media awareness of the problems facing the region’s rich but highly threatened biodiversity and the need a concerted effort in biodiversity conservation and advocacy.
