Why is it important to protect desert ecosystems?

Due to climate change, dry regions across the world are becoming deserts at an alarming rate. This process (desertification) is a consequence of deforestation and human activity. While it's important to prevent desertification, it’s also crucial to protect existing deserts, as they are biologically rich habitats, home to a vast array of species that have adapted to their extreme conditions.
