With more than 1.9 million known species of animals, plants, fungi, and microorganisms and a multitude of species yet to be discovered, the Earth is simply teeming with life. Living organisms come in thousands of shapes, sizes, colours and are found everywhere from the depths of the oceans to the highest mountain peaks, to your very own back garden! This huge variety of life is called 'biodiversity'.
Unfortunately, biodiversity is declining every year, as more and more species are dying out. Loss in biodiversity also endangers our own basic needs for survival.
