It is vital that we all seek to understand the world in which we live, in order to truly realize how our actions both directly and indirectly influence us and many other organisms. Both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems are as fragile as a flower blossom and if we do not learn how to practice sustainability as a global society, it will surely wilt away and die. The purpose of this assignment was to learn how to persuade the general public to seek out or visit a particular aquatic ecosystem. Even if a potential client does not schedule a trip, he or she will still become more educated about a specific ecosystem and will hopefully become more environmentally aware.
For our next lecture, we will cover both positive and negative human influences that either threaten or help conserve our world’s ecosystems.
