The world we live in may not be perfect by any stretch, but is has allowed us to make countless discoveries that have ultimately changed the way we liveor has saved hundreds of lives from the brink of death. We do what we can to encourage it to thrive by driving eco cars and recycling our old cans but there still isn’t a big enough push to help it at times. Here we have a closer look at why we should be paying more attention to all the animals and plants that make our earth the way it is today, and their overall importance within our ecosystem.
It Keeps Us Alive And Well
We always take certain things for granted, and nothing more so than medicine. Something as simple as paracetamol is made up of a whole host of naturally sourced ingredients that help to combat illness in us humans. Even the bandages that cover our wounds are made from natural fibres. Aside from medicine you also need to remember that everything we eat has been sourced from the fruits of the earth, so in order for stocks to be steady we need to be considerate of their needs.
It All Interlinks In Some Way
Many things can create a domino effect and this is definitely evident in the natural world. Take any one thing away from the equation and at least one other thing will suffer because of its absence. For instance, if there weren’t any flies then the spiders would suffer, and then the little birds would suffer, then the mammals and large birds would suffer, and so on. This is also true with microorganisms as many if not all of them regulate the health of larger organisms.
It’s A Big Part Of Our History
We wouldn’t be who we are today if it wasn’t for the world that surrounds us. After all, if it wasn’t for subtle changes in our environment we might not have even had the English language as well as other things. That said, as a result of those changes other creatures will have suffered or even died out. Now that we have the knowledge to help out there’s no reason why can’t try to find a good balance in order to save as many living things as we can.
It Can’t Always Defend Itself
Plants and animals have come a long way since the Stone Age and many of them have learned to adapt very well to the changes that occur. However, there are some things that we humans do that prevent them from being stable such as roads that runs between fields and air pollution from industrial sites. These things can’t always be stopped, but actions can be put in place to make things better on both sides of the coin.
