Imagine approaching our Earth from space. You float down through the atmosphere and encounter freshwater in the form of rain. Because 70% of our planetís surface is sea water, you probably land on the sea. You are washed up on the shore, and you encounter land. Moving inland, you find the forests where you discover biodiversity Ė the variety of plants and animals. Further on, you come to cities! Finally, you move to the planetís extremes and reach the polar regions. Welcome to the richness of Our Earthís environment!
