All life on earth is connected.
The beauty and variety of nature around the world is breathtaking, as even under hardest conditions, life can be found. But life on earth is at a sensitive equilibrium. The extinction of one species can lead to consequences a lot of other species, including humans, have to bear. Because not only do all living creatures share some characteristics but they also influence habitat, ecosystems as well as climate.
"The earth is wide enough for all." - Johann Christoph Friedrich Schiller
