Once there were no trees, all of the nutrient-filled topsoil was washed away due to the fact there were no tree roots to hold it down (Dangerfield). Without soil to grow crops and no wood to build canoes- the Rapa Nui people turned on each other. As the people of the island slowly began to starve, they were forced to become cannibalistic. Human bones were found in large pits where other food waste was thrown, providing further evidence that the islanders were forced to resort to cannibalism (How Easter Island Works). If the trees had never been destroyed in the first place, the Rapa Nui people never would have had to resort to this inhuman
Mythical Origins The Iroquois people are one of the earliest cultures in American history, Their culture remains filled with an abundance of myths and legends that explain the nature of life itself. Their creation story, The World On Turtle 's Back, outlines not only the creation of Earth, but also the complex nature of people. The legend states that the Earth resided on the back of a great sea turtle, constituted first by a pregnant woman. The daughter of whom would birth the twins who would become the duality of deceit and order in every living being.

Laura and Howie’s excursion was an immature action for which they should have been punished. Howies and Laura’s excursion was an immature action because they could have solved the situation easily by going back to the camp and act as if nothing would have happened. Although, I would have also felt mad if some boys would have stripped and marooned me as they did to Howie , Howie and Laura would have just gotten revenge to them and act chill. All the things Laura and Howie did lead to a series of unreasonable events that could have had a better solution and could have ended peacefully. One better decision could have changed the entire situations and events that occurred.
There are many instances where biology is both correctly and incorrectly displayed in the media. Through the use of animation movies mostly, biologists are able to spread awareness of important problems occurring in both the ocean and on land that effect animals and their habitats. The movie A Turtle’s Tale explores the life cycle of sea turtles; from when they are first born and the difficulties they face getting to the ocean to when they lay their own eggs. A Turtle’s Tale shows Sammy, a hatchling who travels the sea in search of his love, which shows how a turtle responds to difficulties in the ocean. This movie also shows how global warming is changing the oceans and affecting the animals that live there.
So Phrynosoma wrote in his notebook: Puffs up into a spiky ball Flips itself over Phrynosoma picked up the creature and started carrying ithim back to the shelter he made in the forest.

Many also argue that the common household pets were also undomesticated in the past and hence they believe they can successfully domesticate the exotic animals of their choice. While all these reasoning may seem understandable and valid, people tend to forget that successful domestication of many household pets took many thousands of years while removing these animals out of the natural ecosystem. With global warming and the destruction of many natural habitats, it seems illogical that we would want to disrupt the ecosystem further by taking animals out of
However, this must be done responsibility without inflicting pain on animals or subject them inhumane tortures and sufferings (Cohen & Regan 140). Much of man's relationship with animals largely corresponds to these two views. One area which joins all these views together is the practice of keeping of animals as pets. Keeping of animals as pest is an old event that can be traced back to ancient history where our ancestors exercised this practice. Sperllin emphasizes that the domestication of plants and animals have largely influenced the history of both man and human species.
