About the ASEAN Biodiversity Heroes | Background

Through the ASEAN Biodiversity Heroes, ACB and its partners will contribute to raising greater awareness about biodiversity in the region, as well as support ASEAN’s vision of One Community through recognition of outstanding achievements in biodiversity conservation and advocacy, emphasising that biodiversity conservation and advocacy are common concerns of the entire ASEAN community.


Specifically, the project aims to:

  1. Recognise outstanding achievements of ASEAN citizens in biodiversity conservation and advocacy;
  2. Inspire people to take action for biodiversity by sharing with them the noteworthy stories of ASEAN Biodiversity Heroes; and
  3. Promote awareness of the value of biodiversity among various audiences in the ASEAN region.
