And then there was one

I realize that species go extinct everyday and that that is part of how we evolve but yet it’s disheartening to hear when another species goes that way.  I’ve often told friends that when you remove one species out of an ecosystem that you disrupt the balance of that ecosystem.

Well, according to this article over at Science Daily, “Ecosystems Change Long Before Species Are Lost“. As someone who has spent most of his life trying to make a difference in helping other species, it makes sense. Not only is the damage long-term, it takes a long time to get there.

Here’s hoping that maybe one day all of humankind will realize that as well because as the article says “Thus, natural ecosystems are likely to be much more fragile then we previously thought.

Sincerely-
