What is habitat?
A beneficial habitat has everything a living thing needs to grow and thrive: water, food, shelter, air and a place to raise young or reproduce, protection from predators.
How much do we depend on biodiversity?
A well functioning habitat provides for us. We get our food, our medicines from our surrounding. It regulates our atmosphere, cleans our water, controls pests, regulates fire, invites in pollinators.
Can you imagine having to design all these functions to collectively and systematically work for us? We depend on many diverse and beneficial habitats. Ever think about who takes care of mother-nature?
