Walked a bit on the strand today and came across these “Info Boards” about how wetlands help stem the tide of extinction.
“What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone , man would die from a great loneliness of the spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to the man. All things are connected.”
“The U.S. Endangered Species Act, established in 1973, grants federal and state governments the power to protect certain species of plants and animals, along with their habitat, to keep them from eventually becoming extinct. Extinction, a natural part of evolution, is when a species disappears completely from the world, and should occur very slowly, over thousands of years. However, due to human influences, the current rate of extinction has accelerated at an alarming pace. “(Emphasis added)
It’s worth considering. Maybe we can reclaim our purpose of tilling and keeping the planet?
