Ecosystem services

Ecosystem services are the numerous and diverse benefits that people openly benefit from the natural surroundings and also from properly-functioning ecosystems. Such ecosystems contain, by way of instance, agroecosystems, forest ecosystems, grassland ecosystems and aquatic ecosystems. These ecosystems working properly supplies such matters such as agricultural produce, lumber, and aquatic organisms including fishes and fishes. Together, these advantages have become called'ecosystem services', and are frequently essential to the provisioning of fresh drinking water, the decomposition of wastes, as well as also the natural pollination of plants and other crops. Supporting services comprise services like nutrient cycling, primary production, soil formation, habitat supply and pollination.

Habitat Conservation

Habitat conservation for wild species is among the most crucial problems facing the environment today - both in the sea and on land. As human populations increase, land usage grows, and wild species have smaller distances to call house. Over fifty percent of all Earth's terrestrial surface was changed because of human activity, leading to extreme deforestation, erosion and loss of topsoil, biodiversity loss, and even extinction. Species can't survive out their normal habitat with no human intervention, like the habitats within a zoo or aquarium, such as. Maintaining habitats is vital to maintaining biodiversity. Migratory species are especially vulnerable to habitat destruction since they have a tendency to occupy more than a natural habitat. Changing a natural habitat slightly may bring about a domino effect that hurts the whole ecosystem.

Supporting services

While scientists and environmentalists have discussed ecosystem solutions implicitly for a long time, the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) from the early 2000s popularized this idea. Additionally, ecosystem services are grouped into four broad classes:
Supporting services
Provisioning

like the creation of water and food

Supporting services
Regulating

like the control of disease and climate

Supporting services
Encouraging

including nutrient cycles and oxygen generation

Supporting services
Ethnic

such as recreational and spiritual advantages

For a long time now, I’ve been wanting to set up a positive, uplifting space for wildlife and nature bloggers to share posts, join discussions and support other content creators — The Wildlife Blogger Crowd is exactly that

A safe space designed around inclusion, mutual support and community —
🐾Wildlife & Nature Blog Community 🌱.
🌟 Supporting one another 🙏🏻.
🌿 Connecting through daily blogger profiles.

Last year I was fortunate enough to be a judge for the UK Blog Awards Nature & Wildlife Category; and what I learned from the experience is that wildlife, environment and nature sector is not like the other areas of ‘the blogosphere’ — as content creators in this category are literally part of the same team; on the same mission with the same goals!

The experience taught me that what the wildlife and nature blog community could use a lot more; is a collaborative space to network, promote one another’s work, share ideas, seek mentors/mentees and grow together.

That’s my vision for The #WildlifeBloggerCrowd. The ‪Wildlife Blogger Crowd has been created as a positive space for wildlife and nature bloggers to share posts, join discussions and support other content creators.
