Why is Biodiversity Important?

Why is Biodiversity Important?

The diversity of life on our planet is critical for maintaining the basic planetary life support systems we rely on every day. Ecosystem services, or the resources nature provides us free of charge, like drinking water, crop pollination, nutrient cycling, and climate regulation, all rely on biodiversity. For instance, the diversity of insect and avian pollinators is crucial to global agricultural productivity, ensuring plants produce harvestable crops for human use.

Where can you find biodiversity in your area?
