What is Biodiversity?
Biodiversity is the shortened form of two words "biological" and "diversity". It refers to all the variety of life that can be found on Earth (plants, animals, fungi and micro-organisms) as well as to the communities that they form and the habitats in which they live.
Biodiversity is important to us. It provides functioning ecosystems that supply oxygen, food, clean air and water, pollination of plants, pest control, wastewater treatment and many ecosystem services.
It also important to combat Climate change.
