Protect Our Species
In celebration of Earth Day and this year's theme "Protect our species", CIFOR has pulled together some of its research related to wildlife in a special feature. From honeybees to elephants, CIFOR researchers have covered biodiversity through their forestry research. Spend some time this Earth Day exploring CIFOR's collection of stories, publications and multimedia which link the importance of biodiversity and our forests.
