This development will directly negatively affect wildlife and the future of many animals. In order for wildlife to be preserved, one has to ensure that the habitat (place where the animals live) and of course the forest is where many animals live. When these high rollers come in swinging their tons of cash to massacre the animal’s home, they are destroying the existence of the animal itself as the habitats provide sustainable survival for these animals. The habitat provides water, food and shelter. Typical needs for any living creature. Without these essentials of life, there will arrive the possibilities of the animals being driven into extinction.
Now let’s make a whole forest of trees. Let’s look at some large grazing animals too. Bison, wild horses, pigs, wolves, bears. Trees collapse from old age or wildfires or lightning strikes and then these herbivores crash through into these clearings further opening up it up. They eat young trees and sapling and in the clearing grows grasses, flowers, shrubs. Sunlight now beams down on berries, flowers, fruits, seeds which grow in these clearings and forest edges. We’ve got birds, butterflies, bees and hoverflies pollinating and continuing the cycle. We’ve got badgers, weasels, mice, voles, moles feeding on insects and nuts and seeds and berries.
The leaves fall from the trees and create a thick blanket which decomposes with the help of fungi and turns to nutrients which the trees, the plants, the insects use to grow. The trees grow, the wildlife thrives. Look at it all! All that wildlife because of that habitat - that collection of trees and soil and plants. The habitat is thousands, millions of little bits of wildlife teeming and interacting and eating and fighting and reproducing and relying and dying and growing. The habitat is wildlife. The forest is wildlife and is a part of the complex and vast web of nature and every species and every habitat is important and that’s why forests are important to wildlife.
But man has a developmental mind. It is a pity that the developmental mind is not used for total good instead of destruction of earth for money. People need to realize the effect of destroying animal habitats and the extremely long term effect it has globally. The only way to help prevent these massacre of nature is if we bond together and let our presence be seen and our voices be heard. Until then, let us try to save one animal at a time.
