By encouraging everyone - young and old - to get closer to nature we all gain a greater understanding and enjoyment of all the diverse biological elements that make up the natural world and our place within it.
And the more we value nature, the more we can do to help protect it
Biodiversity, or biological diversity, means all the diverse living things - us, plants, animals - and the natural landscapes (or ecosystems) in which we live -- seas, rainforests, tundra, meadows - and how they all interact with each other.
A diverse number of species and habitats ensure a healthy planet - something we must all strive for.
We can make a real difference, every day: The choices we make in our day-to-day lives, from the food we eat to the holidays we take, impact on biodiversity —so let’s make sure we make choices that have a positive impact on our planet!
