International Day of the Tropics

The Tropics make up more than 40% of the planet’s surface area and is home to about 80% of the world’s biodiversity and cultural diversity. Unfortunately, it faces many challenges including climate change, deforestation, logging, urbanization, and demographic changes. International Day of the Tropics is a day to celebrate the diversity the tropics provides and acknowledge that unique challenges it faces.
