I love that the world is such a diverse place! Where we live affects so much about our life. People who live in the desert deal with things that people near the ocean don’t even think about, just like people who live in the Arctic deal with things that people who live in wetlands wouldn’t understand. In this issue, we take a look at the environment — the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal or plant lives or operates. Check out the “Connections” section to learn more.
The environment affects animals, too. This month I spoke with conservation biologist Aimee Tomcho. She works with the Audubon Society to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity. You can read about her in the “What’s It Like to Be …” section.
I wonder what part of the world has the most birds. What do you think? Maybe Aimee Tomcho knows!
