What can kids do to help biodiversity?

Remember, if you want to help the environment, "reduce, reuse and recycle."
 

Think before you buy. Do you want something because you need it, or because you saw it on TV? Buy fewer things, but buy better quality so they will last longer. "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Recycle" is a good motto if you want to help the environment.

Do not let any of your pets loose in the wild to live.  They probably will not survive, and they may threaten other plants and animals that live there too. Also, before you buy a pet, make sure it's not an endangered species. It's illegal to own endangered animals, but sometimes people in this country buy them by mistake. Make sure you're informed.

You could volunteer in a neighborhood program that helps get rid of invasive plants—plants that get out of control, take over, and push other plants out.
