Description
Humankind has made terrific accomplishments on this Earth, but we have also been detrimental to other species who share their space with us. Our existence has caused extinction and biodiversity loss of epic proportions. It is essential that teens learn all they can about biodiversity, but this collection of essays takes it one step further; it introduces teens to the global community and its viewpoints on biodiversity. This gives them essential 21st century understanding of what is happening and what can be done about it. Readers will evaluate biodiversity and its relationship to economic development, wildlife, agriculture, and climate change. Countries and places explored include Myanmar, Palestine, the Galapagos Islands, Africa, Canada, Iraq, Japan, Taiwan, and Jamaica.
