- My local Natural History Museum is the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and the Vancouver Aquarium.
- The biome my city belongs in is temperate rainforest.
- Some notable organisms from my local area are: the Vancouver Island Marmot and Thomomys talpoides.
- The biodiversity in my area is stable as there are local forests and parks with various species present.
The most endangered animal in my area is the Vancouver Island Marmot.
- What did you notice was missing from the records?
- I noticed that some species were data deficient where data such as population numbers were not present. This suggests that they lack the research in these specific species and would be beneficial to research the population numbers to see if it is an endangered species.
- Why are these records important?
- These records are necessary to asses the biodiversity of the local area. Without being aware of the species population, we could be harming the species and leading them to be endangered. If we knew what needed to be done to prevent the situation from escalating to the extent that a species would go endangered, it can help keep and improve our biodiversity.
