Value the Interrelationship of Species

An ecosystem is made up of all the living animals and plants and the non-living matter in a particular place, like a forest or lake. All the living things in an ecosystem depend on all the other things – living and nonliving for continued survival – for food, shelter, and other needs. 

A simple yet effective way to make a conscious effort in the fight against climate change is to acknowledge the importance of human and non-human relationships. The lives of humans and our surrounding environments are deeply intertwined and mutually influencing. The natural environment is made up of living things and non living things. Humans depend on the natural environment for their basic needs; food, shelter, and clothing. 

In many ways, the actions and reactions that take place within an ecosystem are like a spider web – when one strand is broken, the web starts to unravel. What affects one part of an ecosystem, affects the whole in some way.
