Today, Friday (5/6/2020) is World Environment Day (WED). This annual moment encourages all people to raise awareness in protecting nature and planet Earth.
This year the focus is on protecting the world’s biodiversity or biodiversity . Biodiversity becomes a part of human life which is manifested from food to medicine.
According to the World Environment Day website , 87 of 115 global food crops depend on insect or animal pollination.
Biodiversity also helps prevent the effects of climate change as forests convert carbon dioxide into oxygen to the air we breathe while continuing to cool the Earth.

Technology was created to stem this threat. According to Google, here are 5 technologies that can protect biodiversity to celebrate World Environment Day.
