It’s not what you think.
No, really, it isn’t what you might be thinking.
We’re really going to talk about birds & bees.
You know, the winged creatures most prevalent during spring & summer. The ones who (for the most part) have the natural ability to fly. The ones we desperately need in all ecosystems, but are in serious danger. Those birds & bees.
In order to protect these vulnerable creatures, we much first realize & assert human advancement is not more important than the state of the environment. When the environment suffers, we all suffer. Birds & bees provide essential (& free) agricultural services to humans everyday. Despite our dependence on them, humans continue the habitat destruction that is pushing extinction closer & closer.
One in eight bird species are threatened with global extinction, and once widespread creatures such as the puffin, snowy owl and turtle dove are plummeting towards oblivion, according to the definitive study of global bird populations.
The Earth is a magically wonderful place. From the depths of the ocean to the heights of the sky, there is life everywhere & that life is threatened more & more everyday. Pollution can, will & does corrupt any & every part of an ecosystem. Though humans place ourselves atop the food chain, we’re just as vulnerable as every other animal on Earth.
