Catherine McNicol reveals some of the work that Wildlife Trusts are doing to
bring species back from the brink.
Complex ecosystems are healthy ecosystems. As
we lose species from plant and animal communities, we lose important processes
and therefore resilience. These simplified ecosystems become less able to endure
extreme events, such as droughts and flooding, less resilient to disease
outbreaks and less tolerant to invasive species arrival.
Often, we work to reintroduce ‘keystone’
species, those which play an important role to a number of other organisms.
