WHO WE ARE

Musicians for Biodiversity is a Non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting awareness of Biodiversity and Biodiversity
loss.  Musicians have always led the way when it comes to bringing important matters to the attention of the public.
The United Nations has designated the years 2011-2020 as the Decade on Biodiversity.

Our Purpose and Goal

Our goal is to make people aware that Biodiversity is the web of life that connects us to all the different forms of life that are on
our planet.  We must understand that no matter where we live or what our culture is, the loss of biodiversity can affect how well
we live and function on this planet.

We also need to make people aware of how biodiversity is related to and connected to other environmental issues such as
Climate Change, which is the number one threat to Biodiversity.

Our Partnership with the United Nations
The goal of the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity is to support the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity
and to promote its overall vision of living in harmony with nature. We became official partners with the UN on this effort in 2013.

To help support these goals, from time to time we invite officials from the UN to be a guest on our internet radio broadcast
“From the Top”  Over the past few years. we have had the pleasure of interviewing Mr.David Ainsworth, the Information Officer
and the Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, Dr Braulio Dias (now former Executive Secretary) on our
show several times.

We also keep up to date with the progress that is being made throughout the world on this ambitious project undertaken by
the United Nations.

Who We are
Musicians for Biodiversity is a Non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting awareness of Biodiversity and Biodiversity loss.
Musicians have always led the way when it comes to bringing important matters to the attention of the public. We have partnered with
the United Nations to help promote their designation of the years 2011-2020 as the Decade on Biodiversity.

Our Mission
Our goal is to get enough information to the average person for them to understand what biodiversity is and inspire them to do what they
can where they are to help stop Biodiversity loss. People need to understand how the loss of Biodiversity can affect the quality of life that
we have on this planet now and in the future.

Getting the message across to people on a subject like this is not easy. However, musicians naturally have an audience and they can
inspire people in ways that other people cannot. Musicians provide a friendly atmosphere. They don’t have to play music about
biodiversity or “sing about Biodiversity” they just need to let their audience know that this is a cause that they care about and that they
should care about it too.


Ways We Inform and Inspire

Connecting with Musicians Around the World
We partnership with musicians from different countries and encourage them to join us in spreading the message about Biodiversity loss
and how everyone can do something to help.

Connecting with Environmental Organizations Around the World
We keep in contact with different organizations that have a similar goal to ours. We make announcements about their activities on or
website and/or Facebook page to help promote their agenda and to inspire others to help as well.

Our Internet Radio Broadcast
Calvin Hogue, the founder and President of Musicians for biodiversity, hosts an Internet Radio Broadcast   called “From the Top”. on Blog
Talk radio. We invite business executives and people from other environmental organizations to be a guest on our show to speak about
what their organization is doing help solve the earths environmental issues. The interview is recorded live and archived, and can be
shared with people around the world.

Our Partnership with the United Nations
We became partners with the UNDB in 2013 after they had declared the years 2011-2020 as the Decade on Biodiversity. The UN has a
strategic plan for Biodiversity to promote its overall vision of living in harmony with nature. Part of that plan is called the
Aichi Biodiversity
Targets. Target number one is to make people aware of the values of Biodiversity and the steps they can take to conserve and use it
sustainably. This is where MFB is dedicated to helping.

As partners with the UNDB we receive regular communications that keep us up to date with the progress that is being made throughout
the world on this ambitious project undertaken by the UN.

We also have the privilege of interviewing several officials from the UNDB on our Internet Radio Broadcast such as the Information Officer,
and the Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
