Biodiversity is the variety of all living things; the different plants, animals and microorganisms, the genetic information they contain and the ecosystems they form.
Biodiversity provides us with such basic things as food, fuel, shelter and medicines. We are currently seeing a massive loss of biodiversity.
It is important to know and value our biodiversity.
«In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught»
