What is Biodiversity?


Biodiversity is an ever-changing aspect in the world that we inhabit. There are an estimated 1.7 million species that have been identified and named, with almost 13,000 new species being added to the list each year. However, there has been a large rate of extinction in the world that is far greater then the extinction that happened to the Dinosaurs. What we as humans need to realize is that we are not the only type of species that are inhabiting this great planet we call Earth. The more that we expand and grow as a group, the more harm we do to world of biodiversity. Just as the video illustrates, biodiversity helps keep a balance in this world, and if it were to collapse, we would soon find ourselves in a rather sticky situation (so to speak). Let's just hope that we, as a species, realize the impact that we have on the world and do something about it before we end up just as extinct as the Dinosaurs.
