Transcript of Our Fragile Earth by Jason

There are five main ecosystems. They are Grasslands, Desert, Tundra, Forest and Aquatic. Aquatic Biodiversity Biodiversity means a variety of different life. High biodiversity has many species of plants and animals. Low biodiversity does not have as many species of plants or animals than high biodiversity. Natural resource A natural resource is a material or non material that is not man made, it is made naturally.

For example air, water, sun, clouds, and soil are examples of non-renewable resources. While animals and plants are examples of renewable resources. How can we help? Don't throw plastic anything on the floor.
Don't throw garbage in seas, rivers, or lakes.
Don't kill too many animals for food to eat.
Don't cut down too many trees.
Do whatever we can to protect endangered animals.
Do plant trees, lots of them!
Do recycle water.
Do walk or bike to school or other places to stop air pollution.
Do teach other people how they can help too! Credits Bio: life
Diversity: different renewable: you can use again
non-renewable: you can't use again Ecosystem-

Deserts- hot, sandy, and dry places where animals need to adapt to live there because it is so hot.
Tundras- very cold places where you need to wear special clothing for you to not get really cold.
Forest- a big area with a lot of big trees. Animals in the forest are very interesting to me because there are different types of animals that live in the trees.
Aquatic- my favorite ecosystem! The Aquatic ecosystem is one in which there are water animals, coral reefs, and seaweed. Dolphins, sharks, squid, octopus, stingrays, other fish and more water animals live in an aquatic ecosystem. Some animals are endangered, like turtles, Bluefin Tuna, Winter Skate, and Atlantic Halibut. So, we need to protect these animals!
