WWF and other leading organizations assess biodiversity around the world in order to evaluate the status of our planet and determine necessary actions so both people and nature can thrive. Scientists look at a number of different factors when determining an area’s biodiversity health. In this activity, students will follow similar guidelines and survey the biodiversity of their school or community grounds. Based on results, they will strategize ways to increase and protect biodiversity by making the area more habitable for species.

Key objectives for students
Explain biodiversity and the criteria scientists use when assessing it.
Design a map of their school or community grounds that defines the natural areas being assessed.
Develop and implement ideas for how to increase biodiversity in their area.
