The world is made of an amazing invisible web that we rarely recognise. Healthy biodiversity supports healthy ecosystems which make life possible. We can support biodiversity by encouraging wildlife and habitats, supporting conservation and connecting to nature through our senses.
The Biodiversity Topic has some natural overlap with Water, Litter & Waste, School Grounds and Health & Wellbeing.
