Why is biodiversity important?
Biodiversity is our living bank balance. It provides us with many of the things that sustain our lives. It is essential for our health and well-being that we protect our biodiversity and the services that nature provides.
Nature provides us with the clean air, clean water, food and a host of other services.
The natural environment is worth about £17.2 billion a year to the Scottish economy!
Regular outdoor exercise and contact with nature is good for us.
Biodiversity provides the basis for life and prosperity for the whole of mankind.
Biodiversity is part of our traditions and culture and a source of pleasure and enjoyment.
