The Biosphere 2 Project is an experiment in which scientists, engineers, and some intrepid "biospherians" (or dwellers) within the Biosphere have recreated several of the main terrains and habitats of our planet and attempted to co-habit with these environments to the environments' benefit. Many environmentalists see planet Earth as the first, original, and only known biosphere endangered by pollution, acid rain, global warming, the destruction of tropical rainforests, and a thousand other manmade ills. The Biosphere 2 Project is an experiment to prove that humans can live in the most precious terrains on Earth successfully and nondestructively.
