Mother Earth is our first teacher. She has informed us that oneness does not equal sameness. She shows us this through the harmonious balance that is held in the rich biodiversity that exists within our world. To achieve oneness we must transcend our differences and embrace the integration of every individual aspect of humanity into the whole, knowing that all health systems are comprised of complexity and the abundance of diversity.

Biodiversity is a boon to us. It is defined as the variety of plant and animal life in the world or in a particular habitat, a high level of which is usually considered to be important and desirable. Flora is denoted for the plant species whereas fauna is animal life in a particular area.

Kids love to visit the zoological parks. If there will be similar species left in a zoo, there will be no importance of visiting it. There are plenty of plant and animal species which are already extinct from the earth leaving behind the traces of their existence.

India is said as the land of diverse people and cultural values. Indeed, the animal and plant species aren't safe in India. We have started giving more importance to urbanisation and industrialization. We never realised while clearing forests that these two are the habitats and hub of several plant and animal species. We never thought that by releasing effluents in water bodies, many aquatic plants and animals get affected and vanished in those grey ponds and lakes.

We can escape from this harmful pollution and global warming causing climate change. How will these animals do without our support and control of environmental degradation?

We should preserve every scrap of biodiversity as priceless while we learn to use it and come to understand what it means to humanity.

Habitat destruction is the biggest threat to biodiversity. Plants, animals and humans are dependent on each other for their survival. When the situations go out of control then we come up with Project Tiger and the Chipko Movement. We can not come up with instant results. If the circumstances are alarming, we should take concerned steps towards its preservation. Every year, flower shows are conducted in many areas. Plant species are declining day by day. Biodiversity is our strength. If it will be replenished at a fast rate, we will be left with a destructive human race only. We won't be able to survive for long years on earth.

Biodiversity is the greatest treasure we have. Its diminishment is to be prevented at all cost.
