However, Biodiversity’s contribution to our life is not just practical, physical and utilitarian, it is also cultural. The diversity of the natural world has been a constant source of inspiration throughout human history, influencing traditions, the way our society has evolved and supplying the basic goods and services upon which trade and the economy is built. The disappearance of unique species is a loss that cannot be calculated and leaves us all much poorer.
BIODIVERSITY IS LIFE!!! BIODIVERSITY IS OUR LIFE!!! and COLOMBIA is one of the world's most biologically diverse countries. In honor of the 2010 initiative, I am planning a series to focus on some of the great biodiversity that can be found in Colombia. Hand in hand with this series, I plan to highlight some of the amazing national and natural parks of the country, and make suggestions as to how you can help Colombia preserve its biological diversity. I encourage you to involve you Colombian born children in learning about the amazing biodiversity of the country and taking at least 1 action as a family to preserve that diversity for future generations.
