10 years ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity

The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) marked its 10th year with the theme, “ACB and ASEAN Member States: A Decade of Cooperation on Biodiversity Conservation.”  The celebration covered a number of activities on 2 October 2015 at the College of Forestry and Natural Resources, University of the Philippines, Los Banos, Philippines. These included the groundbreaking ceremony of the new ACB headquarters; Tree Growing Activity at the “Tree World”; awarding of the Zooming in on Biodiversity Photo Contest Winners; and “Nawa’y Muli Tayong Makauwi,” a musical theatre show on biodiversity conservation. 

The event provided ACB with an opportunity to promote the milestones of the Centre, and a venue for the ASEAN Member States, ACB and its partner organizations and countries to get together and further strengthen collaborations and reaffirm commitments to conserve the rich biodiversity of the ASEAN region.
