Ecology in Context Vast arrays of environmental problems are now affecting the world. With the enclosure of more green spaces, global warming, and the extinction of animals, mankind seems intent on destroying any hope of leaving the world intact for future generations. If the world has any hope of survival we need desperately to begin to think more about ecology in order to make changes and save the world from certain destruction. Our usual understanding of the word ecology is that it advocates for the preservation of nature, but it actually comes from the Greek word “oikos” meaning house. Therefore, in thinking about ecology in terms of our house of nature, it is essential that we are careful to manage our house and its contents properly.

Forests play a hugely significant role on planet Earth. They act as "Earth's lungs." (WWF, n.d.) These "lungs" purify the air trapped in the atmosphere and are positively involved in the daily lives of all living things. However, the environment's harmful cigarette, deforestation, permanently removes the forest cover from an area and transforms that previously forested land to other uses. Deforestation is the primary cause of losing these valuable forests and it is occurring at an unimaginably rapid pace.

Voluntarily or involuntarily each of these conquests has an adverse impact on the land they conquered. In industrialist and capitalistic societies, such invasions into indigenous communities will result in an erosion of natural resources and deforestation. The new face of ecological imperialism and its impact on postcolonial indigenous communities can be seen in many of the works of postcolonial literature. A focus on Thomas King’s Green Grass Running Water and Leslie Marmon Silko’s Almanac of the Dead hopes to reveal the complex fabrics of relations between the oppressed land and its inhabitants. The imposition of a dam and a human-made lake and reservoir on a Blackfoot reserve in the small town of Blossom, Alberta, is a potent symbol in Green Grass, Running Water for non-Native oppression of Native Canadians’ land rights, traditions and cultural codes.

83.2% of their money goes towards conservation projects. The Sierra Club: The Sierra Club is reaching out to people to help promote clean air, water conservation, removal of toxic waste, and other necessary processes for this planet, and all its animals. Conclusion The list of endangered animals, provided by many conservation organizations, continues to grow every day. In our world that is obsessed with expansion and profit, other species no longer have a place to live in a natural habitat and go extinct unnaturally very frequently. We face the loss of biodiversity, the most profitable business if we let these animals continue to die out as well as the breakdown of many fragile webs and ecosystems.
