Zoo Animal Habitats: Natural Habitats of Animals

Year 7 Science



We must, at a minimum, aim to hold on to key examples of every part of the web of life, from the Arctic to the Amazon. Although an estimated 50% of all species occur within one habitat type—tropical rainforests—the other half of all species are found elsewhere in land, freshwater, and marine environments. To conserve these, we must embrace full representation of the world's diverse ecosystems.
