Planet Acts: Biodiversity
Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth. Biodiversity is typically a measure of variation at the genetic, species, and ecosystem levels. Biodiversity is the key indicator of the health of an ecosystem. Healthy ecosystems clean our water, purify our air, maintain our soil, regulate the climate, recycle nutrients, and provide us with food. They provide raw materials and resources for medicines and other purposes. They are at the foundation of all civilization and sustain our economies. It’s that simple: we could not live without these “ecosystem services”. All acts that protect, maintain, or improve biodiversity are linked to this sub-category.
