Today (May 22) is International Biodiversity Day, and a great day to recognize and celebrate #mountainbiodiversity. Over 1/4 of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity and 1/2 of the world’s biodiversity hot spots are in mountain areas. And, the chronic impoverishment of mountain peoples and communities is major factor in the environmental challenges facing these sensitive areas. Yet another reason to #HelpCarryTheLoad for #Nepal, help the people of Nepal rise from the ashes of the #nepalearthquake and rebuild stable communities and economic systems that protect and preserve these critical #biodiversity resources. #themountainpartnership @welovemountains #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer
