Do you have a favourite sea creature?
A healthy sea environment is home to thousands of different plants and animals. Most look very different from land creatures and plants.
Biodiversity includes the many thousands of species of plants and animals. Biodiversity is also about the many different ecosystems that these species live in.
Some of the things that influence the type of marine ecosystems are water temperatures, depths of the water, how clear the waters are and what the bottom of the seabed is made from e.g. sand, rock.
