You are the naturalist who matters most.
The same thing is happening in every ecosystem. Urbanization. Massive population explosion of people -- not wildlife.
I heard several interesting comments at the "Shifting Baselines" website in the "Roundtable Video". Here's a paraphrase:
One television producer said, "You can't show the bad stuff in the environment on television. No one wants to see it."
Another chimed in, "I spent my entire career photographing the beauty of the oceans -- thinking that people would love them and protect what they love. But it's like we told them everything is fine -- they don't have to do anything."
And another person said, "I'm the kind of person who wants to do something, but I don't know what to do."
If you'd like to see some of these messages, check out Shifting Baselines -- their growing library of videos about the ocean are thought provoking to say the lease: Shifting Baselines videos
In the meantime, if you're the type of person who wants to do something, I suggest you start at home. Start with your attitude. Be curious. Ask questions. Take tiny actions at first. Do things that reduce your impact in your own home. Use less. Recycle. Turn off lights. Don't flush the stool unless you need to. Do simple things that make your personal journey on the earth a bit lighter.
And then you'll find other things to do that make a bigger difference. But it all starts with that one little spark in your own heart. A shift from fighting nature to protecting our shared survival raft.
You are important in the transformation of what's becoming a trash dump into a living home in which we can thrive.
