All things, by
hiddenly linked are.
That thou cans't stir a flower,
without troubling a star.
Everything is connected to
Even the smallest changes to the
environment can have devastating effects. Cutting down
trees not only affects the forest plants, it also kills
the musk deer that eat the lichens that grow on those
trees. If the wild dogs that prey on people's livestock
are killed, then their other prey, the wild boars, will
trample the crops. If a hotel is built in an empty
marsh, the black-necked cranes will have nowhere to
spend the winter.
Always think of our children
Taking things from nature has a
cost, and it will be paid by future generations when
they lack the natural resources that we have today.
Always remember that we do not own the earth. We are
only minding it for our children.
