1% For Biodiversity
What we have learnt from living on this planet and reading about it is that we are not alone. We share this planet with other species and every single one of us is connected. The enormous variety of life on Earth refers to every living thing, including plants, bacteria, animals, and us humans. We are a part of this ecosystem and we 100% depend on each other.
Thus preserving every life on this planet is crucial and has never been more important than right now !
For eg: A single grassland can contain a vast range of species, from beetles to snakes to antelopes. Ecosystems that host the most biodiversity generally tend to have ideal environmental conditions for plant growth and like the warm and wet climate of tropical regions.
All of the Earth’s species work together to survive and maintain their ecosystems. For example, the grass in pastures feeds cattle. Cattle then produce manure that returns nutrients to the soil, which helps to grow more grass. This manure can also be used to fertilize cropland. Many species provide important benefits to humans, including food, clothing, and medicine.
Much of the Earth’s biodiversity, however, is in jeopardy due to human consumption and other activities that disturb and even to an extent destroy ecosystems. Pollution, climate change, and population growth are all threats to biodiversity. These threats have caused an unprecedented rise in the rate of species extinction which hints at half of all species on Earth will be wiped out within the next century.
Conservation efforts are necessary to preserve biodiversity.
The richer the diversity of life, the greater the opportunity for economic development, medical discoveries and adaptive responses to new challenges like climate change.
Thus we encourage everyone around us and you to understand this grave situation and act accordingly.
1% for biodiversity, is not just some initiative. It is close to our hearts which means we are involved emotionally, physically and financially.
It's about how we all can do little to save tomorrow.
Let's work towards building a balanced ecosystem.
