Why is Biodiversity Important?

As you know, biodiversity is a shortened and blended form of biology and diversity. Also, biodiversity is known as genetic, species, and ecosystem diversity.For species diversity, a classic example would be a reef ecosystem which is composed of corals, fishes, mollusks and plants. Habitat diversity can be represented by Africa where we find rainforests, savannahs, and deserts.

Although we explained that biodiversity is IMPORTANT because we are highly dependent on other species for survival, it is also important to understand that each species are fulfilling a role that keeps life on Earth in balance, biodiversity provides us many services, such as ecosystem services,biological resources and social benefits.

If we somehow fail to protect other species as stewards of nature, the failure is more to ourselves than to them!

  1. Problem::::
    The law makers who make our environment legislation concerning what corporations can do with pollution and cancer causing chemicals are clearly in bed with the dirty industrial monster that lives for profit.

    What we all need to do to address such a huge problem is simple, unite with people power groups like
    In a tight election a campaigner trying to gain power will look at the community groups with the most members. Then that groups issues will become his/her issues. such is the dirty business of politics.
    Lets unite and make use of the tools provided by
