Living Things – Habitats

The particular environment that a plant or animal lives in is called a habitat.

The world needs a variety of habitats to ensure all living things have somewhere to live. Some examples of habitats are:

– Deserts

– Rainforest

– Coral reefs (see photo on the left)

Some habitats are much closer to home though, for example:

– Woodland

– Garden ponds

Many habitats are in danger because of human activity such as:

– Cutting down trees

– Building homes and roads on grassland

– Polluting rivers and lakes with chemicals
