  9. 11. Biodiversity crisis caused by climate change Vicious circle
  10. 12. Biodiversity crisis caused by climate change Current photos with animals Future photos with “animals”
  11. 14. Chapter 3
  12. 15. Current policies <ul><li>1. Integrate the protection of biodiversity and ecosystem processes into urban development and planning policies and processes. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Increase the integrity and viability of areas of biological significance by effectively managing land use impacts. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Increase the viability of areas of biological significance by identifying and protecting them and creating linkages between them. </li></ul>
  13. 16. EDUCATION Biodiversity protection is not only the responsibility of the government ,the planner .It is the responsibility of everyone of us. <ul><li>Advertisement: attract the community’s attention </li></ul><ul><li>Learning at school </li></ul><ul><li>For children: </li></ul><ul><li>Let the children have the course of biodiversity, making them understand “what biodiversity is and how important it is.” </li></ul><ul><li>Precedent: National Threatened Species Day Poster- held by Environment Australia September 7, 2004 </li></ul>
  14. 17. EDUCATION <ul><li>For Uni </li></ul><ul><li>Hold some research programs about biodiversity in different school. </li></ul><ul><li>Precedent: Biocity sudio in the School of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urban Design at the University of Adelaide. </li></ul>
  15. 18. EDUCATION <ul><li>Learning by doing -Provide an opportunity for community participation in biodiversity conservation and can also be an avenue for social interaction. </li></ul><ul><li>For children: </li></ul><ul><li>Hold some camps for biodiversity education . Make the children learn biodiversity by the interaction with the wild life. </li></ul>
  16. 19. EDUCATION <ul><li>For community: </li></ul><ul><li>Native trees planting program for helping recover the habitat loss: </li></ul><ul><li>Ask the community to involve such conservation project to make them have a deeper understanding of the biodiversity, the causes of biodiversity crisis and the environmental issues that may carry to other aspects of life. </li></ul><ul><li>Precedent: The Canopy program - run by the Australian Carbon Biosequestration Initiative Ltd (ACBI). </li></ul>
  17. 20. EDUCATION <ul><li>It is a program to suggest people to go “carbon neutral” or “offset” their greenhouse gas emissions. To offset generally means to pay someone else to compensate for the greenhouse gas emission you cause. </li></ul><ul><li>Planting trees is one way to offset emission. More over, they encourage people to offset their emission by buying </li></ul><ul><li>the carbon credit. </li></ul>
  18. 21. Think of it this way. Planting a seed is a start. Growing a tree is a small step. One forest is a beginning and with a Canopy of forests we can begin to change the world.
  19. 22. EDUCATION <ul><li>Learning by playing-develop the ecology tourism </li></ul><ul><li>Nature tourism attracts tourists with an interest in temporarily living in, and coming to better understand a specific, novel, relatively natural ecosystem. Its primary focus is on experiencing natural areas that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation. </li></ul><ul><li>In order to make it more interesting : </li></ul><ul><li>1,community nursery </li></ul><ul><li>2,adventure tour- observing animals in the evening </li></ul><ul><li>3,ecology photos tour </li></ul><ul><li>4,adventure in the sea </li></ul><ul><li>5,geology tour </li></ul>
