When planning your backyard landscape, the more habitat variation you create, the greater the diversity of organisms you will attract. Diversity is a conservation goal.
Every day 50 to 100 species of plants and animals become extinct as their habitat and human influences destroy them.
Sears Woods State Nature Preserve is located at 1486 Mt Zion Road and has a fantastic hiking trail that has beautiful woodland views and also follows the Sandusky River.
Animals like cockroaches are really important in a habitat because they eat the dead plants and recycle the nutrients back into the soil, which helps the plants to grow.
Habitat loss is one of the main causes of species extinction around the world.
Sadly, humans are causing many habitats around the world to disappear. Forests are being burnt or cut down, lakes and rivers are polluted and the polar ice caps are melting.
Species evolve over time to become better suited to survive in their specific habitat.
