Dr. Ken Wilson, Executive Director of The Christensen Fund, describes the private foundation's focus on biocultural diversity.

Since 2004, the Christensen Fund mission has integrated our concerns with the arts, biodiversity and education as follows:The Christensen Fund believes in the power of biological and cultural diversity to sustain and enrich a world faced with great change and uncertainty. We focus on the biocultural; the rich but neglected adaptive interweave of people and place, culture and ecology. Our mission is to buttress the efforts of people and institutions who believe in a biodiverse world infused with artistic expression and work to secure ways of life and landscapes that are beautiful, bountiful and resilient.

Apache Resistance At Oak Flat Against Arizona Copper Mine
Static Preview
Stand with us in joining the San Carlos Apache Nation to protect Oak Flat campground, a sacred Apache site in the Tonto National Forest in central Arizona.

International mining giant Rio Tinto's plans to develop a massive copper mine there would leave a depression in the ground the size of the Winslow meteor crater, drain the aquifer and destroy important streams, springs and wildlife habitat.

Oak Flat is also home to numerous species of wildlife, including an ocelot that was killed on a nearby road several years ago. The area was formally withdrawn from mining by presidential order 50 years ago, but Congress recently approved a land swap that allows the company to obtain private control of the land and evade environmental laws in the process.Published on Feb 10, 2015 by Center for Biological Diversity

Saving Indonesia's Most Bio-diverse Ecosystems by Andrew Miner

The Last Resort: The fight to preserve Indonesia's most important tropical paradise

When Andrew Miners first arrived in the Indonesian island village Babitim he was struck by two things: the tropical paradise surrounding him, and the corpses of the mutilated sharks strewn around the beach.

Now Andrew's efforts have been fulfilled as "the worlds most bio-diverse marine habitat" is officially protected by a 425 sq/km "no-take zone", barring anybody but locals to fish inside the perimeter. Featuring astounding underwater footage of marine wildlife set against the brutal realities on board the shark-trawlers, conservationists and natives cooperate to create a model for ocean preservation that "could inform the way we manage oceans around the rest of the world." See Misool Eco Resort.

United Nations Decade on Biodiversity - Interactive webcast
Static Preview

Features Amed Jkoghlaf, Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity. He defines biodiversity. The loss or degradation of biodiversity, now occurring at an unprecedented pace at local and global levels is a threat to our environment, economies, cultures and societies. It is changing our conception of ourselves and our place in the world. Human impact on biodiversity, ecosystems and climate continues to grow and the complexity and diversity of the range of services that flow from biodiversity are often unknown and undervalued.
