Modern humans created a list of “invasive species”. An invasive species is a species that was introduced to an environment, often by humans. Meaning, it is not native to a particular area of land or body of water and as a result has damaged it. The environment has no natural predators or resources to manage the non native species. It takes over the environment and chokes out other native species. I have often wondered why “modern humans” are not on this list as we are the most invasive to both land and water by polluting, over harvesting, and changing the scape to them both. This series explores how modern humans are an invasive species and how we need to change our consumption and waste behaviors. More works to come.
