Biodiversity – it means all animals and plants on our planet, as well as the ecosystems that create their habitats, i.e. places in which the animals live. Biodiversity demonstrates that together we are one big puzzle: if one or more puzzles are missing, then it won’t be possible to complete the entire picture.
Why is biodiversity so important?
It has crucial impact on the life on our planet and makes sure that we are healthy and safe, feel good, as well as have enough to eat. It helps everyone and everything without exception: plants to grow, animals to develop, protects against floods, ensures clean water and fresh air. During the last 100 years, humans have contributed to the disappearance of 83% of all wild mammals and half of the plant species. The manner in which we grow food, generate energy, dispose of garbage, as well as the fact that we do not save water or electricity – all of this results in the fact that we destroy the natural balance.
