Valuing Ecosystem Services: Does it matter and how do we go about it?

Dr. Rosie, Director of Tropical Biology Association, shares her experience with the audience on creating courses and building capacity as a tool for effective conservation.

Ecosystems are communities formed by the interaction between living (plants, animals, microbes) and non-living organisms (air, water, mineral soil). Human beings are part of ecosystems and we benefit from them in many ways. The benefits are known as Ecosystem Services (ES). Learn about why valuing ES is important for conservation and how it is connecting people to nature.
