What is biodiversity and why is it important? 什麼是生物多樣性?保護它的意義何在?

文字稿

Biodiversity is the variety of all life on Earth – it’s thousands of habitats and millions of species.

生物多樣性指地球上所有生命的多樣程度,蘊含數千個棲息地和數百萬個物種。

And it’s in trouble.

而生物多樣性現正告急。

We depend on biodiversity for food, water and medicine, but also to help fight climate change.

我們不僅依靠生物多樣性獲取食物、水和藥品,還依靠它幫助應對氣候變化。

As the world warms, its systems begin to collapse.

隨著全球氣候變暖,構成生物多樣性的生態系統開始崩潰。

Some animals are being pushed to the brink of extinction.

一些動物正瀕臨滅絕。

In order to slow down the rate of biodiversity loss, we need to cut emissions of greenhouse gases.

為了減緩生物多樣性喪失的速度,我們需要減少溫室氣體的排放。

And we need to restore and protect habitats.

同時,我們需要修復並保護棲息地。
