Alabama's Aquatic Biodiversity

Alabama is one of the states with the most biodiversity.

In fact, Alabama ranks #1 when it comes to the number of freshwater critters! Biodiversity refers to the total number of different plant and animal species.

Every organism from microscopic bacteria to the great blue whale is unique and essential to the health of our environment and human life.

Conserving biodiversity:
• Helps us discover new medicines
• Provides our food
• Adds jobs and promotes nature-focused tourism

Protecting and restoring habitat is the best way to conserve biodiversity.
