If you are not already aware the 2011-2020 is the decade the United Nations has devoted to the theme of Biodiversity. I'm sure you're wondering what on earth Biodiversity is. Well, you could just ask any of the children on the Green School Committee but they are very busy, so here is a short summary:

Biodiversity is the variation of living organisms from all sources, terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and all the habitats of which they are part; this includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystems. Imagine life without all this diversity!  Life on earth would cease to exist!
