Environmental Degradation

Natural processes and anthropogenesis can result in negative consequences for our environment. Disruption or destruction to natural and abiotic habitats can shift the symmetry of life, and adversely alter the balance of an ecosystem.

  • Environmental Degradation


Wildfires are a natural phenomenon yet cause massive devastation to species and habitats. However, controlled burning is prescribed to promote seedling germination, beneficial nutrients and reduction of catastrophic wildfires.

  • Fires

Human Impact

Deforestation, restoration, agriculture, and urbanization are among the many ways we effect our environment. Some processes are beneficial to both the environment and humans, most lead to destruction of the natural ecosystems.
