Biodiversity

Biodiversity refers to the variety of organisms found in a particular habitat. It is important to maintain biodiversity because we rely on it for ecosystem services, which fall into four main categories: provisioning, regulating, cultural, and supporting. The earth provides these to us for free and they are critical to achieving a planet in balance.

Use these resources to explore the diverse species that exist across the globe, and encourage your students to become good stewards of life on earth.
