  • Biodiversity is the key to success in any ecosystem. The more diversity in an environment, the more crossbeams there are for species survival. Less impact equals more time for conservational efforts to take hold, in a world where time, though technically constant, is being overwhelmed by the speed of modern life.
  • Learning about ecosystems and the natural world is one step in appreciating and protecting our global heritage. Personal connection and interaction with plants and animals is imperative in accelerating the determination of students to conserve and protect wild spaces and species. As living creatures that have so much direct impact on the global environment, we have a responsibility to learn how to be sustaining members of the biosphere.
