Biodiversity Day at ELTE Füvészkert
On May 21st 2022 we were at the ELTE Botanical Garden. The ELTE Botanical Garden houses more than 8,500 plant species, 150 domestically endangered, and 250 red list species classified as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The Botanical Garden plays a particularly important conservation role by preserving and artificially propagating endangered and protected plants, as well as continuous plant reintroduction experiments.
Biodiversity, or biological diversity as it is also called, affects the lives of all of us, its preservation is a common interest, the pledge of our future. On International Biodiversity Day, children and adults alike could participate in all-day family programs. In addition to the crafts and gardening activities for children, the visitors were able to expand their knowledge at a number of professional presentations and demonstrations during the event. From the water samples collected on site, those interested could learn more about the aquatic macroinvertebrates and zooplankton found in the small ponds.
We would like to express our thanks to the ELTE Füvészkert and to the lovely visitors for their interest in our work.
We had a fantastic day with you!
