Transcript Biodiversity

 All
species, no matter how small it is has an
important role to balance the ecosystem
 In
the Philippines, its coral reefs, holds
300,000km2 diverse species.
 Our
rainforest are home to 102 species of
amphibians, 254 species of reptiles, 179
mammals, 20,940 species of insects, 548
species of birds, 15,000 kinds of plants.
 They
are efficient use to make medicines,
clothes and foods.
Biodiversity, short for biological
diversity, is the term used to
describe the variety of life found
on Earth and all of the natural
processes.

Benefits of biodiversity

Can be a skin ointment, antibiotics, anti-cancer
drugs.

The wild species are an important reservoir of
genes that aid farmers in empowering food crops
and livestock.

Provides foods, shelter and clothes.

Control pests, recycle water, reduce flooding and
control erosion.

Alteration and destruction of ecosystem

Farming practices

Hunting, killing and exploitation of animals

Introduction of new species

Water pollution and atmosphere

Failure to account for the value of biodiversity


If our Earths biodiversity gets too damaged we could lose
our fresh water causing larger water restriction, our reefs
and our Alpine Areas. There would be more bushfires and
effects our lives, home and property.

It damage spread Tropical diseases and parasites. There
will be a large spread of weed, pest and bugs. It will
damage or destroy our coastal areas and beaches. There
will be a loss of rainforest and jungles.

Loss of biodiversity appears to impacts ecosystem as much
as climate change, pollution change and other major
environmental forms of environmental stress.
“Loss of biological due to species extinctions is going to have
major impacts on our planet, and we better prepare
ourselves to deal with them,” by Bradley Cardinate
Methods of preventing extinction

The zoo-botanical garden approach

Biodiversity has a big function to the
balance of ecosystem as well as to the needs
of human, but because of the unlimited
wants off human, the change of climate, the
innovation of technology, the pollution, and
the industrial site affects the number of it.
They become extinct as the modern time
passed by. The local government made a law
to protect it, but the most effective
protection is comes from human.
