What is biodiversity?

Biodiversity describes the variety of animal and plant life found within a habitat.

Biodiversity helps our ecosystems function – it ensures we stay healthy by having clean air, water and pollinating plants. 

 

Without biodiversity there is no humanity and species would become extinct.

Whilst biodiversity helps our economy, providing consumables and raw materials, human actions have had a negative impact on biodiversity.

Over farming, damaging habitats and wiping out species impact climate change; we need to work together to reduce our impact and protect our biodiversity.
