California Academy of Sciences: Biodiversity Course

Take a virtual expedition with us to investigate the amazing diversity of life on this planet.

Learn what biodiversity is, why it’s important, where it’s found, how it comes into existence, how you study it, why it’s threatened, and how it can be protected.

We are extremely excited to launch this course on biodiversity. Exploring, explaining, and sustaining biodiversity is at the core of the mission of the California Academy of Sciences, and partnering with Khan Academy has given us a wonderful way to share our course around the world.

The course is designed for many audiences, including teachers, students, families, youth leaders, policy makers, and anyone interested in learning more about the diversity of life on our planet. We hope that you will not only learn things from the course, but will also be moved to become even more active stewards of the environment and its precious biodiversity.
