What is Forest Biodiversity?
Biodiversity, in simple terms, is variety within the living world. It is most commonly used to describe the number, variety and diversity of living things; from plants and animals to fungi and bacteria.
Why Protect Forest Biodiversity?
Protection of biodiversity is vital for ensuring that forests are managed in an ecologically sustainable way. Protection of the plants and animals that live in the forests that we work in is important for maintaining a healthy balance of different ecosystems and the creatures that live within them.
Although it may not be immediately obvious, plants and animals provide a wide range of important services and resources that we all depend upon for our survival and for future generations to come.
