Wildlife sites in Hounslow


Biodiversity is the name used to describe the variety of all living things within an environment. It covers everything from bacteria to blue whales and algae to giant redwood trees. The environments where these organisms may live may include woodland, heaths, rivers or even cities! Such places are called habitats and are home to different types of plants and animals.
