As a zoologist, my goal is to conserve and defend the variety of life that exists on this planet. I have worked in conservation since the age of 14 and now serve on the board of the Conservation Fund. I have been studying marine and freshwater fishes for over 30 years, and I have recently started to research sea turtles. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on this board and the many people who have shared their knowledge with me.
As a zoologist, it is my hope that my research will be useful to future generations.
That is a noble goal, but it doesn’t always work out that way. It is clear from the research I have done and the research I am doing now that marine and freshwater fishes are disappearing from the ocean, and sea turtles are becoming extinct. It is very difficult to conserve marine and freshwater fish species; they are being eaten by predators. I have been working to stop this for many years and have recently established the Marine Turtle Conservancy to encourage research on turtle conservation.
We are a species that is very adaptable to a changing environment, so why should we be afraid of going extinct? This is one of the many reasons why I keep going back to my book “Animals That Are Trying To Survive”. I find it so fascinating to watch the animals I love adapt to a changing environment. I am not afraid of the ocean, nor am I afraid of the sea turtle. I am not even afraid of the sharks if they are threatened.
This same thought process happens when a new species or species of animal is introduced into a new environment. Why should we worry about it changing our surroundings? A new species might be adapted to a specific environment, but we might not be able to adapt to it.
Animals adapt to their environment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t adapt to it. Just because something is adapted to it doesn’t mean you don’t have to adapt your own. In the case of animals, the adaptation happens so that their abilities and traits are better suited to their new environment.
It’s much easier to look at the animal and think, “Oh, I see these traits are good for this new environment,” but a species that adapts to a changing environment is still going to have a hard time adapting to us. Because, when an animal adapts to a new environment, it’s usually because of something else. In the case of humans, the adaptation is basically just the ability to talk, a trait that we share with every animal.
The point here is that we adapt to our surroundings. Our brain is the only thing we are completely dependent on to function in our new environment. But if we adapt to a new environment we lose that ability to adapt. So when we adapt to a new environment, we lose a lot of our ability to adapt. We lose our ability to talk, because no one else in our world can talk. We lose our ability to act, because no one else in our world can act.
It is important to note that the ability to talk, act, or think is not the only trait we lose. When we adapt, we also lose our ability to think. As our brains become larger (and thus more complex), we also lose our ability to understand new and complex ideas. We lose our ability to do all our other functions and tasks and behaviors when we adapt to a new environment.
In fact, we lose the ability to do all our other functions and tasks and behaviors when we adapt to a new environment.
