Biodiversity simply means the variety of all life on earth. It includes all plants, animals, microbes, the places where they live - and even us! All these things together give us many benefits without us even noticing:

  • clean air
  • water
  • food
  • energy
  • medicine
  • jobs
  • places to live

We need all the different kinds of life around us in order to survive. Unfortunately our biodiversity is under threat from factors including climate change and development.
