Why Should We Conserve Biodiversity?

Biodiversity, in its simplest meaning, is the variety of plant and animal life in a particular environment. Higher the biodiversity levels, better are the implications for the environment. For instance, if a particular species is driven to extinction, or introduced to a new environment, it can create an imbalance in the ecosystem. This can have undesired consequences for humans as well as the environment. It can bring about a shortage of resources, create a threat for the endemic species, or introduce new diseases into an environment. Hence, conservation of biodiversity is important.
