Biodiversity is a scientific term that is now commonly used. Put simply, biodiversity refers to the variety of life. This is not only all the plants and animals but also the habitats that support them and the complicated interactions between these and the wider environment.
Raising awareness of biodiversity is required to conserve wildlife. The Hawthorns Urban Wildlife Centre is an important source of biodiversity advice and information for the public and school children of Southampton.
