Biodiversity is the variety of life.
Biodiversity is the variety of life - the different plants, animals, insects and all other life forms and the ecosystems of which they are a part. Kakadu's stunning biodiversity is internationally recognised in its listing as a World Heritage Area.
Covering nearly 20,000 square kilometres, Kakadu is one of very few places World Heritage listed for both its cultural and its natural values. Its enduring natural values stem from its exceptional beauty and unique biodiversity, its variety of landforms, habitats and wildlife.
The Creation Ancestors gave Bininj/Mungguy a kinship system linking people to all things and the cultural responsibility to look after them all. They have always understood the biodiversity of country and their traditional ancestral knowledge is a vital part of managing Kakadu's rich environment.
