An analysis of the Biological Diversity Act 2002 on Biodiversity Day 2022.

It was this day Grassroute was waiting since its inception. The Biodiversity Workshop has been successfully done. The session was brief and informative. It gave a ray of light on BDA and how it designed to protect our biodiversity.
