To preserve the balances existing in nature between the living organisms and the ecosystems.
The concept of "biodiversity" describes the variability of the living organisms of any nature, the terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and the ecological complexes to which they belong. It also comprises the diversity within each species, between the different species and within the ecosystems.
Traditionally, biodiversity destruction has been related with the extinction of species and the loss of habitats. However, nowadays other important ecological aspects are also directly affected, such as the preservation of the balances existing in nature, the influence on the climatology and the landscape, and other effects on economy, society and culture. Therefore, conservation of biodiversity is of main importance for society in general.
