What is Biodiversity?
Biodiversity refers to the variety of species that live in a particular habitat. It includes all living things on Earth and how they interact. In Okotoks, we are lucky to live within a habitat with resources that allow many species to survive and thrive. In return, these species provide important services to humans. These include providing us with clean air, water purification, climate regulation, pollination, and much more! It is important to understand and protect the biodiversity in Okotoks for personal enjoyment, but also for the essential services it provides to us.
