Transcript of biodiversity project

what is Biodiversity
Using up natural resources before they can be renewed (over-fishing in oceans, or over-harvesting trees on land)
Habitat destruction like clearing forests or draining wetlands for towns or agricultural purposes
Releasing invasive species into foreign ecosystems (like the cane toad in Australia or the zebra mussel in the Great Lakes)
Any kind of pollution (water, air, soil, etc).
Failure of food chains
The threats to Biodiversity
Put out bird feeders, bird bathes, and houses.
Put up a bat house.
Be careful not to buy coral, ivory, or tortoise shell products. They come from endangered species.
You can volunteer at a nature center, park, or a zoo.
Add mulch to soil to prevent erosion.
Composting can add nutrients to your soil.
Buy organic produce.

How can you help Biodiversity
Plants absorb greenhouse gases and help stop global warming.
It is easier for biodiverse ecosystems to recover from natural disasters.
Healthy biodiversity of species can provide a variety of food (like meat and produce).
Many of our medicinal drugs come from plants.
All of our wood products come from nature.
We can learn more about our earth by observing a diverse ecosystem.
Many recreational areas benefit from a healthy ecosystem, which promotes tourism.
Biodiversity is beautiful and should be enjoyed.
