One major goal of The Wild Classroom is to educate everyone about the extreme amount of biodiversity in the world. Its amazing. Our sister site, Explore Biodversity, has dedicated itself to discovering and documenting the rich diversity of flora and fauna on this planet. So we've teamed up with them to bring to you some amazing videos and articles related to biological diversity.
