What is Biodiversity? Cool Animated Explanation

Sunday 22 August 2010

What is biodiveristy?  That is a very good question and it demands a good answer.  So, no doubt that is why many teachers and parents alike have shrink away from answering this and point to the internet for an answer.  Well, they came to the right place.

Help is at hand and what is even better - visual help.  If you are asked what biodiversity is, you can simply point your interrogator to this very cool explanation.  The animated short film was made by students of the Vancouver Film School.

The students involved in the project were Amanda Healey, Jesse Lang, Juan Carlos Arenas and Robert Ramalho and they created it through the VFS Digital Design program.  Congratulations to all of them - this animation should be sent out to schools immediately!  What about a text based explanation, however?

Wikipedia defines biodiversity like this:

Biodiversity is the variation of life forms within a given ecosystem, biome, or on the entire Earth. Biodiversity is often used as a measure of the health of biological systems. The biodiversity found on Earth today consists of many millions of distinct biological species. The year 2010 has been declared as the International Year of Biodiversity.

It certainly makes sense, but which explanation do you prefer?

Yup.  File under better explanation than Wikipedia.

This was shot at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan.

The main tank called the Kuroshio Sea holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world's second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.

This was shot using a Canon 5DMKII with a 28-135mm lens.

This project was produced for Science Alberta to promote science and agriculture in Alberta and to explain the concept of bio-diversity to kids in a visually interesting way. We think it does the job very well!
