For every nook and cranny in a forest, there are animals and plants that call it home. Just as we do, animals are particular about their habitats, it is NOT one-size-fits-all. They need all the variety that a healthy forest can provide - food, fresh water, room to wander and place to refuge.
As the Earth's climate changes, species are forced to migrate in search of new viable homes. While some are successful, many (especially terrestrials) are unable to relocate in the absence of connected forest landscapes.
While the human population grows and therefore increase in demand for resource is inevitable, with every acre of forest lost to sweeping industrial development..wildlife habitats are shrinking and breaking apart.
Breathe deep and take a moment to consider the impact of our misdoings. Even if we live in a city, we're closer to nature than we think. Conserving and revitalizing this wildlife habitat was essential years back...it is the only choice we have now.
