Why Run for Biodiversity?
Each May 22, USC joins millions of people around the world in celebrating International Biodiversity Day, as well as World Food Day on Oct 16.
Biodiversity is all about food and farmers. It’s the earth’s life-support system, and nature’s brilliant insurance policy against disaster. If something fails, there’s a back-up plan: Biodiversity! Much is at stake for us all, and in a real sense, USC is helping farmers plant the Seeds of our very Survival
Thanks for Making a Difference!
Thanks to your generous support, USC Canada is able to help farmers grow more food for their families, in ways that our kind to the environment and nurture biodiversity.
