Message from the Editorial Committee:
In Nature, all forms of life are interconnected and each species is necessary for the health of the whole. It is Human Nature, to label some forms of life a pest, vermin, or a weed.
Such labels are based on misunderstanding of the functioning of life forms within ecosystems. They are used to justify the widespread violence we inflict on wildlife and on natural systems. Violence akin to chemical warfare against plants and insects, and calls for culls of one species after another. Violence which takes the lives of countless bees, geese, deer, coyotes, grizzly bears, and most recently, wolves.
When we open our minds and hearts to the similarities between misunderstood detestables and ourselves, we see the love of the coyote family, and the courage of the mouse.
