If you are thinking one year ahead, sow seed. If you are thinking ten years ahead, plant a tree. If you are thinking 100 years ahead, educate the people. Chinese proverb

While you're eating, sleeping, working, driving, or watching TV, forests are helping to clean the air and oceans are regulating the climate… At the same time, several human activities such as over fishing, deforestation, wild species hunting, are putting at risk different ecosystems and, more broadly, biodiversity… Play with us and check how much do you know about the precious services provided by nature, the amazing diversity of life around the world and all that risks putting an end to this marvellous richness.
  • Biodiversity performs! [www.worldwildlife.org/fun/games/performs]- learn more about some of the secret services that ecosystems and the species within them provide with this very nice and instructive multiple-choice game in four rounds. This activity is adapted from WWF's Biodiversity Basics - a teaching module for middle school educators focused on biodiversity. B
  • Take the true or false biodiversity quiz [www.brookdale.cc.nj.us/staff/sandyhook/quizzes/biodiversity.htm]- to discover the difference between biodiversity, biomass and biogeography; the largest biome on earth; or the continent with the largest biodiversity… The quiz can be easily printed out and used as classwork activity) B
  • Mapping biodiversity [www.worldwildlife.org/fun/games/mapping/index.cfm]– a smart multiple-choice activity that highlights the incredible diversity of life around the world and how scientists survey and map eco-regions. Highly recommended to all those who love geography and nature.
