Natural winners of the GDA Biodiversity Award

This year's winners of the GDA Biodiversity Award are awesome on their scope and impact on their respective environments. From an educative biodiversity kitchen in Japan, to moss and insect's life in the remote reaches of Sweden, to urban biodiversity in Denmark, the range of GDA 2023 Awards is rather breath-taking.

The mission of Abuto Kitchen Gardens is to foster a deeper understanding of biodiversity by empowering families to embrace sustainable living practises. They present a unique solution that goes beyond a product. These micro-gardens serve as a tangible connection to the environment, inspiring families to appreciate and cultivate biodiversity within their living spaces. It's a commitment to change, a pledge to nurture both nature and family well-being.

In Sweden's pristine old-growth forest, the Klimpnäs Primeval Moss Project reveals the wonders of ground mosses, ferns, and grasses. Here, a symbiotic dance unfolds, showcasing the beauty of nature's collaboration at the micro-scale. This ancient ecosystem is not just a habitat but a living example of biodiversity harmony. Our commitment extends from observation to conservation, advocating for the preservation of these extraordinary ecosystems. The Swedish research unveils a delicate choreography of mutual dependence, where each organism plays a unique role in supporting the others. The natural flora and fauna interact closely, forming relationships that are not just incidental but essential for survival. In this intricate web of life, mutual advantage is the guiding principle.

Transforming from a monotonous grassy area to a biodiverse space, the goal at Bygholm Soepark was to establish a habitat supporting a variety of plant and animal species. Diverse vegetation, including native wildflowers, shrubs, and trees, creates niches for insects, birds, and small mammals. The aim was to enhance biodiversity, promote ecological balance, facilitate plant pollination, and encourage natural pest control. Ultimately, this transformation contributes to a healthier and more resilient ecosystem in this Danish city neighbourhood. Within the biodiversity area and its immediate surroundings, there is already a noticeable enhancement in fauna, featuring hares, rabbits, water voles, various bird species, and small mammals like moles. The project aims to further develop and expand the management of the biodiversity area, seeking collaboration with city authorities and leveraging their seed planting policy for continued success.
