I believe that biodiversity is a factor needed for life to exist on planet Earth. When looking at a small ecosystem like a pond, it is astounding to see how many organisms live in that one area. From the frogs, to the small micro-organisms, all life is able to coexist and sustain by working with one another. The Earth is no different than the pond, just at a larger scale. We humans are able to live due to the help of the millions of other species that live on Earth. The water we drink, the air we breathe, and the food we eat, all come from nature and are the basic necessities for human life. Every product we use daily comes from natural life. Clothes are made from cotton found on cotton plants, trees provide us with soft wood used to make paper. Rich soil is. . .
. . . needed to grow crops for food. Overall biodiversity is essential for us and all organisms to survive. However, many still do not understand the importance of biodiversity. Everyday, the pollution we produce and the biomes we destroy are killing numerous species and wiping them out of existence. For example, the recent deforestation of the Amazon rainforest is destroying many different flora and fauna, some of which we have yet to learn about. If life on Earth is a suspension bridge, the species act as the cords that keep the bridge from falling. Even if one or two of these cords snap, the bridge will surely collapse. The Earth has already lost many species, so how much more loss can it withhold? People do not understand that the loss in . . .
. . . biodiversity will never come back and will change life as we know it. This decrease should be taken seriously now, because there is no more time to waste. According to Bill Nye (the science guy), 17 different species are lost every hour. The real question should be how can we as humans stop the damage we are causing to the biodiversity of our planet?
