International Day for Biological Diversity

Journée Internationale de la Biodiversité

The United Nations has designated 22 May as the International Day for Biological Diversity, with a view to encouraging better understanding and increasing awareness of this subject.

This is an opportunity to recall that, as part of the implementation of its national policy for protecting Biodiversity, the Principality regularly carries out inventories and surveys of both animal and plant species.

Thus, on a daily basis, the Department of Urban Amenities monitors compliance with Sovereign Ordinances (Sovereign Ordinances No. 3.647 of 9 September 1966 and No. 197 of 25 March 2011), in particular those relating to the protection of plant species under the "Tree Code."

To this end, State operatives are responsible for recording all the trees present on the territory, in both public and private areas.  All the data are mapped on the Geographic Information System (GIS).

Some of the data can be consulted directly on the "Your Monaco" website.
