Nature / Biological Diversity
Biological diversity (biodiversity) comprises diversity of species and habitats as well as the genetic diversity within the individual species of fauna and flora. In this area, you will find interesting facts, worth seeings and current news about global protection of nature and biological diversity.
Worldwide the annual rate of extinction is about 1000 times higher than it would be under normal circumstances. Protection of species means conserving animal and plant species and stopping the loss of biological diversity. And it is not only plants and animals that must be protected; their habitats are in need of protection, too. All this requires firm measures at international, national, regional and local level - and above all, conservation-oriented behaviour of each individual citizen.
