"Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children." [Kenyan proverb]

As a part of the Planet queue, we share the planet with other species: what do you know about this incredible richness of life on Earth? What do you know about forests, grasslands, and other habitats? Have you ever thought about the way your shopping cart impact biodiversity?. How consumer demand is responsible for boosting illegal wildlife trade? How could you give your contribution to preserve biodiversity? Play with us and puzzle it out!
  • What are the world’s richest regions in terms of biodiversity? What could we do to reduce our impact on wildlife when walking in the nature? Which country was the first to establish a national park? Test yourself with the Biodiversity game [http://greenpack.rec.org/biodiversity/tests/index.shtml] hosted by The Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC) website, a not-for-profit international organisation with a mission to assist in solving environmental problems in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).
