According to Jerry Coyne, ecosystems are incredibly vulnerable. As he addresses, “island ecosystems… are fragile things, easily ravaged by foreign invaders who can destroy habitats and species,” (110). The worst, as he adds, are humans themselves. We’ve seen the destruction of the rainforests for trees and land, as well as land in our own towns destroyed to make homes and buildings. As Coyne continues, “each species represents millions of years of evolution and, once gone, can never be brought back” (110). What lengths are humans going to to protect ecosystems and preserve their habitants? Also how are we restoring habitats that might have been damaged by humans? Coyne’s also brings up the point that we bring over organisms into different habitats that the environment isn’t adapted too. Give an example of an animal that has invaded a foreign habitat and the results of its invasion. If possible, explain how humans are trying to fix the problem and restore balance to that environment.
