International Day for Biological Diversity was celebrated on 22 May worldwide. The UN General Assembly declared International Day for Biological Diversity on 20 December 2000. The loss of biodiversity in Armenia is huge and there are a lot of reasons for this such as loss of habitat for animals and plants, poaching, fire, natural disasters, diseases, mining and SHHP operation. For example, wild boars got completely extinct in Armenia several years ago because of African swine fever.
