The United Nations declared 2010 to be the International Year of Biodiversity. It is a celebration of life on earth and of the value of biodiversity for our lives. The world is invited to take action in 2010 to safeguard the variety of life on earth: biodiversity.

Nature documentaries are one of my favorites programmes on TV. Bust most of the time I'm feeling so down after watching them.... Last I've seen on the Belgian TV how they Galapagos Islands are being destroyed by tourism and there are so many animals who or losing their habitat all over the world! I'm hoping that eco tourism will help to preserve our wildlife and their habitat!!
Maybe the most environment friendly is to just collect cards from all those amazing places..... but the cards are also printed on paper and sent by airplane...
sigh... :-(

Pygmy elephants are found only on the northeast tip of the island of Borneo, and inhabit forests near water sources and grasslands. Borneo pygmy elephants are smaller than other Asian elephants, chubbier, and have bigger ears and tails. WWF estimates that there are as few as 1,600 individuals remaining in the wild, and the top threats to pygmy elephants are habitat loss and conflict with humans.
