GREEN SCHOOLS NEWSLETTER MARCH 2013
Green Schools is a long term programme, and after our great achievement of being awarded our 4th Green Flag last June, we are already looking forward and working towards achieving our 5th. The 5th Green Flag is for Biodiversity and we hope to get it in 2014.
What is Biodiversity?
Biodiversity is our life support system. It is the variety of all life-forms on Earth, from the tiniest bugs living in our soil to the butterflies in the garden, the plants they feed from and the biggest whales in the sea. Biodiversity includes the diversity of individuals within the species (genetic diversity), diversity of species within an ecosystem or habitat (species diversity) and the diversity of ecosystems or habitats (habitat diversity).
