What is Biodiversity? Biodiversity is the variety of all living things; the different plants, animals and micro organisms, the genetic information they contain, the ecosystems they form and how they interact and connect with each other and the environment.
Thank you! The ‘Up Close’ events are made possible by funding by the State NRM Community Grants program, Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, and the support of Natural Resources South East, Forestry SA and various local community groups and organisations.
