Wildlife gardening addresses a critical environmental problem facing humanity today. Biological diversity, or biodiversity, has been declining across the world. Typically, as an ecosystem's biodiversity reduces, the system's integrity reduces, making it more vulnerable to disruption or collapse. Over time, if the biodiversity decline continues, the ecosystem may collapse - no longer able to support the organisms that depend on it.
Wildlife gardening promotes biodiversity and has the potential to provide habitat sanctuaries and habitat corridors for native wildlife - protecting the health of our home ecoregions!
