Biodiversity refers to the variety of plant and animal life; nature conservation involves the protection of biodiversity and fragile ecosystems. There is an urgent need to preserve biodiversity as it serves important ecological functions like maintaining ecosystems (a group of life forms that live together in a balanced and stable community). For example, forests help to produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide through photosynthesis. Beyond these ecological functions, it is important to preserve biodiversity so that future generations can experience the same world that we enjoy.
