Learning about the environment through art
Biodiversity - the variety of life is all around us and is necessary for everyday living. Every year on May 22, the World celebrates International Day for Biological Diversity on a theme that focuses observations on a particular issue of importance to biodiversity. This year’s theme highlights “Marine and Coastal Biodiversity” to bring much needed awareness to the plight of the often neglected marine organisms, which are being threatened by climate change, pollution, the marine industry and more importantly, overharvesting.

Both visual and performed art are excellent ways to tell important stories about the importance and threats facing our natural environment. Activities such as art allow children to use their imagination and aids in the development of their physco-motor skills. Through art, children can express their views on the environment.
