What Can You Do?

Learn more about biodiversity - in your backyard, your community, your country and your world! These pages provide a wealth of specific ideas about things you can do to help conserve biodiversity, along with links to further information.

Learn: Biodiversity education begins with learning. Discover the names of the trees, birds, native plants and insects that share your neighbourhood. Visit your local natural history museum, zoo, or botanical garden. Talk to local producers at your Farmer's Market to find out where exactly the produce is coming from, and the methods used in its production.

Experience: Once you know a little more, get out and experience the wonders of life's diversity. Visit a local park. Take an afternoon hike through a nearby conservation area. Soon you may find yourself eager to take part in eco-tours which take you further afield, far off the beaten track or even on trips to foreign countries.

Do Something: Finally, get involved! Make changes to your lifestyle which reduce your impact on the planet, or become a 'citizen scientist' and join others in contributing to our collective understanding of the world around us!
