"Every living thing requires a place to be. A place to exist and a place to find food and to reproduce. When you take over an area for you own use, you take away that area from other living creature. Habitat loss is the greatest threat to species worldwide. So, the wise permaculturalist tries to …. maximise opportunities or species to co-exist. The ideal is to produce and artificial ecosystem which mimics natural systems whilst providing for human needs."
