𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐁𝐢𝐨𝐝𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐃𝐚𝐲 𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 at National Diversity Center (NBC)
To mark the international Biodiversity day, the Biodiversity Interpretation Centre, a one-stop hub for Bhutan’s biodiversity was inaugurated at National Biodiversity Center (NBC). The centre is expected to educate and inspire a love of nature, provide an interactive learning forum and raise awareness on Bhutan’s rich biodiversity as well as encourage the general public to value biodiversity. The centre was dedicated to our beloved Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck on the occasion of his 5th Birth Anniversary. The centre includes display of plant and invertebrate specimens, wood samples, biodiversity research equipment, ethno-botanical artefacts, audio visual facilities and information display materials among others.
In addition, a user manual for the Bhutan Biodiversity Portal (https://biodiversity.bt) was launched. The manual will provide a step-by-step guidance to the registered users of the portal, an online repository for Bhutan’s biodiversity launched in 2003.
