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.
A short clip on the different habitats of different animals.
The Importance of Wildlife Habitat Relationships Both the general habitat type and the specific features of the habitat help to determine the wildlife species found in an area. Learn about some of the most important wildlife-habitat relationships to help you determine which species may be present on your property and how to improve the habitat for certain types of species.
