The Thin End

Learning from the Wood Mouse

June 20, 2018

One of the problems for humans, and for the planet, is that we have isolated ourselves from our ecosystem. Yet,  our activity impacts on the global climate and on habitats.  Unlike  Apodemus sylvaticus, we destroy more of our forests than we plant, and we deplete the worlds fresh water with our increasing demand for crops and our unregulated world trade. 

Is this really the best we can do with our 'intelligence'? Or have we much to learn from the wood mouse?
