OUR VILLAGE,OUR PLANET, OUR FUTURE.
Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth, in all its forms and all its interactions. This includes everything from microorganisms, plants and animals to the natural systems that support them. Biodiversity describes our natural wealth, which makes up the living landscape around us, sustains ecological systems and enhances our quality of life. It enables our natural systems to function properly by providing many important services such as soil formation and nutrient recycling, and pollution breakdown and absorption, as well as biological resources such as the water we drink, the air we breathe and the food we eat.
In short, our survival is dependent upon these vital ‘ecosystem services’ which are the benefits that people derive from nature. Our own wellbeing and health benefit from contact with all aspects of wildlife and nature.
