A few days ago, I visited a construction site of an apartment complex. There I saw scores of monkeys jumping around and creating havoc. Upon investigating a little deeper, I discovered that prior to the construction there used to be a small patch of trees where these monkeys used to live.

It got me thinking. We have destroyed the home of these monkeys to make homes for ourselves. Is this what makes us the most ‘advanced’ species of the planet? I read a National Geographic report that 100-1000 species are lost per million per year.

Are we just colonizers who exploit nature as long as it is useful to us, and leave it to fend for itself once its utility is exhausted?

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Deep down, we know that our survival revolves around the sustainability of nature. Yes, we leave it to rot once it has been completely exploited of its resources, but for how long will we keep doing that? People are realising the need for conserving their natural surroundings now that it is depreciating in value and finally highlighting the consequences. Basically, it’s about how we reach at the peak and only realise we have gone far after we start falling. Just sad.

  2. We’re the most barbaric species that makes the nature adapt to us rather than the other way around. It’s pathetic and we should actually be ashamed of how we’ve destroyed the only home we have.

  3. Since ages humans in their own interest exploiting the nature and animals. May be this can be termed as collateral damage.However animals have the same right on the planet Earth what humans have. Humans in the name of development over interract with the nature and sacrifice the animals. Unfortunately this will never stop but nature retaliates in it’s own way. However now humans have started realising the importance of environment and initiated the steps for the coexistence of the animals.
