September 21- 27, 2020 is Science Literacy Week in Canada. Science Literacy Week highlights diversity in Canadian science.

Biodiversity refers to the variety of living species that live on Earth. This includes plants, animals, and bodies of water. Canada is lucky to be home to a wide range of biodiversity that spans from coast to coast.
