Safeguarding biodiversity calls for the active involvement of all citizens, businesses, governments and organizations. 
 
Collectively, we need to build a vast network to communicate the importance of biodiversity with the rest of the world. What we are doing as part of Myristica is also a significant contribution towards the *Aichi Biodiversity Targets*, which provide an innovative and visionary approach that integrates biodiversity with social and economic drivers at the heart of the problem, and thus the key to the solution. Even though a little, but the significant contribution from our side for environmental communication and awareness needs to be continued.
 
 
I am also requesting you all to please go through the renovated website of Myristica (https://www.myristicafarookcollege.com) and let me know if there are any corrections or suggestions. I have also requested CBD CHM Team to list Farook College as an Actor of the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity, for making a long-term commitment to promote biodiversity in its activities and communications. I am also trying to make Myristica as a member of the Global Youth Biodiversity Network (GYBN) and waiting for a very positive reply.
 
"The actions taken by individuals, businesses and governments – our collective actions – are critical for protecting all life on Earth. By being proactive about biodiversity we ensure human well-being. It is in our own interest, in the interest of our children, and in the interest of future generations to come, that we take action in support of biodiversity.
 
Now, more than ever, it is time for all of us to start living in harmony with nature." -Taking Action for Biodiversity, CBD (2010)
