Biodiversity includes all the different plant, animal, fungus and micro-organism species worldwide, the genes they contain, and the ecosystems of which they form a part. It includes everything from your back garden to the rain forests of the Amazon and everything in between. Importantly, many species are dependent on each other, so if one suffers, so do many others.

As well as making our natural world more interesting and varied, having a rich biodiversity actually keeps our whole world healthy. It is vital to the health of our planet that individual species and their relationships with each other are protected and preserved.

The Lough Neagh Wetlands are home to a variety of species including Tree Sparrows and Whooper Swans. For more information on these species please visit the links below.
