Why Does Biodiversity Matter? I was asked this question by a friend, no doubt invited by my rambling on about nature, and I’m ashamed to say I struggled to answer beyond a stuttered ‘Um, it just does...er...a lot'.
Obviously since then I have replayed how I should have answered, eloquently and persuasively using both scientific and spiritual arguments, but that said it is a difficult question to answer.
Biodiversity is in some ways very simple; it's the web of life, of which we are a part. It’s the air we breath, the water that we drink and the food that we eat.
