Let the show go on

 

For you and me

it’s free to see.

The greatest show around.

The cast’s

eleven million of

the life forms that abound.

 

From big-screen species

super-stars

like humans; dolphins; whales.

To tiniest of

microbes making

sure our show won’t fail.

 

The plants provide

the perfect props

and stunning back-drop scenes.

All intertwined

with DNA

and fascinating genes.

 

The show is so

tremendous.

Full of life’s variety.

Our planet Earth’s

X-factor is …

BIO-DIVERSITY!
