Why We Care
Most people think nature is only in far away places, filled with rivers, mountains, and polar bears. But nature is also all around us, where we live - in cities. Loss of biodiversity is happening everywhere. Globally: Insects are lost. Wildflowers are disappearing. Species are going extinct.
