Conservation of Biodiversity

Biodiversity or Biological Diversity is the variety of different types of life found on earth. It is a measure of the variety of organisms present in different ecosystems. This can refer to genetic, ecosystem, or species variation.

Biodiversity is extremely important to people and the health of the world’s ecosystems, and forests are among the most biodiverse and valuable ecosystems. Forest biodiversity can impact everything from the food we eat, the medicines and products we derive from nature, to the quality of the air and water we depend upon. The health and biodiversity of our forests also helps our environment recover from disturbances and adapt to changing conditions.
