International Day for Biological Diversity 2023 Special

It's International Day for Biological Diversity today, celebrated annually on the 22nd of May to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues. This year, the theme is “From Agreement to Action: Build Back Biodiversity” and is meant to promote action in support of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework. On today's show, we want to celebrate Malaysia's incredible biodiversity by revisiting previous Earth Matters interviews, which all highlighted different aspects of Malaysia's incredible biodiversity. Listen to snippets from these episodes: The ABC's of Biodiversity: River Terrapins, The ABC's of Biodiversity: Seagrasses, and The ABC's of Biodiversity: Gibbons of Malaysia.
