Why The Living Med

The Mediterranean Hotspot

The Mediterranean Basin is home to an astonishing diversity of plant and animal life. The region also boasts rich cultural landscapes and a long history of coexistence between human civilizations and nature. The high proportion of unique species and ecosystems found in the Mediterranean
led to its identification as one of the original 34 Global Biodiversity Hotspots, regions that hold especially high numbers of endemic species, yet their combined area of remaining habitat covers only a small percentage of the Earth’s land surface.
