The web of life relies on all creatures great and small
It’s time to big-up the joys of being small
PAUL McGUINNESS, EDITOR
One of the many things I enjoy about Gillian Burke’s column each issue is the way she explores our connection with nature (p17). I love to feel connected to wildlife for many reasons, one of which being how it makes me feel part of something big – really big. At the same time, swimming in the ocean or standing in a rainforest serves as a reminder of just how small I am in the grand scheme of things.
No matter the size, every life form on the planet – from the tiny ant to the elephant – contributes to the richness of diversity that makes the whole thing work. So this issue, we celebrate some of the smaller and more maligned species (p68), which are often overlooked or dismissed. After all, shouldn’t cockroaches, mosquitoes and other so-called creepy crawlies be celebrated as the vital strands in the web of life that they are?
