We note that biological diversity means the diversity of all living things on earth - microorganisms, plants and animals. In 1992, the Convention on Biological Diversity was adopted in Nairobi, Kenya to protect the planet's biological heritage. On December 20, 2000, General Assembly of  the UN organization   declared May 22 the adoption of the Convention on Biological Diversity, as well as the International day for Biological Diversity. That the  same year, the Republic of Azerbaijan acceded to the Convention. In accordance with the basic principles of the Convention, a number of measures are taken to protect biological diversity in the territory of the Republic. In recent years, the existing network of specially protected natural areas has been expanded, new national parks, state nature reserves have been established, the protection regime in specially protected natural areas has been strengthened, appropriate measures have been taken to strengthen the legal framework and  existing legislation  compliance  with international law. That is why the teachers introduced the students  Shirvan National Park, one of the specially protected areas in the country, on the International Biodiversity Day.
