Benefits of Biodiversity
Biodiversity is life. There are many specific aspects to biodiversity that affect every one of us on this planet – remember, you are biodiversity too!
Everything we have comes from our surroundings, therefore conserving and enhancing biodiversity is essential to achieving a sustainable future. The fruit and vegetables we eat will have been pollinated by bees, water we drink originates from rainfall, plants provide us with oxygen, medicine, building materials, fuel - the list goes on and on. The pages in this section highlight the benefits that biodiversity brings to our health and wellbeing, economy, ecosystem services and knowledge.
