The Artdog Quote of the Week

In the great balancing act of life, greater biodiversity is our friend. Any monoculture–no matter how well protected from the dangers and variables of life–is vulnerable. Each species fills its niche to the benefit of the entire biome, when all are in balance.

Yet some seem to think we can ignore natural laws and discard “useless” species at will, or as necessary. How can we find a way to counter and diminish the prevalence of such thinking? We must find a way, or our whole planet (the only one we’ve got!) remains in peril.
