Wildlife and biodiversity
The UK has a rich and varied natural heritage of plants, animals and their habitats. The term biodiversity encompasses the whole variety of terrestrial life - all species of plants and animals, the genetic variation between them and the habitats in which they live. It is not restricted to rare or threatened species but includes the whole of the natural world from the commonplace to the critically endangered.
The land-based industries have an important role in the conservation of natural resources, in the maintenance of indigenous wildlife and its diversity, and the impact on its sustainability.
