UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre

It is widely accepted that global biodiversity is at risk. While humans are often encouraged to think globally yet act locally, who's watching out for the bigger picture. The answer is in the form of the World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC), which is a function of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). It is now noted as "the world's foremost intergovernmental environmental organisation." This site offers up-to-date news and publications about world biodiversity issues as well as providing an incredible array of information on the several projects in which the centre is involved, ranging from habitat to species to protected area issues. The site also offers great Interactive Map Services, which take the visitor through in-depth presentations of topics ranging from Coral Disease to Marine Turtles.
