There are many different species and lifeforms that exist on our planet.
This concept is known as biological diversity or the shorter phrase
Biodiversity. This includes every organism that you have never heard of to
the largest tree or mammal you can think of.
Biodiversity is not an isolated issue that affects just a certain group of
people. It affects everyne, no matter where you live or what your culture is.
Our Way of Life Is Threatened
The loss of Biodiversity is the problem While we understand that extinction
is a fact of life, there are many species that are now becoming extinct at an
alarming rate. When a form of life ceases to exist, it will affect another form
of life. Every living thing is connected in the web of life.
Many forms of life make up the way we live today. The things that we take for
granted in our everyday life such as the food we eat, the medications that we
take, the clothing we wear and even the houses that we live in, are there
because of what nature has provided through the web of life that we call
Biodiversity and climate change
The number one threat to biodiversity is Climate Change. There shouldn’t be too
much debate about the reality of Climate Change these days, as we see and hear
about the effects of it almost on a daily basis
The acceleration of the sea level, large wildfires dangerous heat waves, droughts,
extreme storm events, have become far too common in too many areas for us to
ignore. These things contribute to the loss of Biodiversity. Scientists have good
reason to be alarmed about the frequency and severity of these weather events
going on around the world.
What is Biodiversity?
Without these things.....
We wouldn't have these things
