Biodiversity is a term used to describe the variety of life found on earth, and captures everything from diversity of genes, to species, to ecosystems. Biodiversity is fundamental in agriculture, as healthier and more diverse ecosystems are considered to be more productive, provide essential ecosystems services such as pollination, and have a greater ability to adapt to pressures related to climate change and other environmental-related challenges.

Focusing on habitats that support species-at-risk, this tool is designed to help producers understand how their practices may already be benefitting species, and identify opportunities that can be considered to maintain or improve habitats on their farm.
