Mutual Symbiosis: A Model for Peaceful Coexistence
Peace, a great necessity in life, the absence of which you cannot fully understand until you have an experience of the mayhem caused by the Boko Haram insurgents of my region – dead children, mutilated bodies, burnt down community and thousands of misplaced families. I really don’t want to share the experience in details but I assure you, the devil himself considers it horrible.
Nature does not just provide us with natural resources, it equally gives us a great number of life-saving lessons. Although human civilization has developed by the proper use of nature and its products, peaceful coexistence, selfless interdependence and mutual relationship are lessons that could be learnt from nature. A study of the clown fish and the sea anemone reveals to us a few of such lessons.
The clown fish and the sea anemone are sea creatures whose lifestyle is altogether a bunch of lessons worth learning by humanity. A clown fish is a small beautifully coloured fish that lives in partnership with the sea anemone; a sea dwelling creature that …show more content…
The clown fish and the sea anemone relationship is a classic example of such relationship and a lesson to humanity especially as it relates to peace, peaceful coexistence and mutual understanding. Although both the clown and the anemone are weak and may not survive for long if left on their own, their coming together in oneness makes them strong and formidable and thereby, becoming survivors in a dangerous environment. With a continuous unbroken relationship, the sea anemone and the clown fish survive for about sixty and ten years respectively. Interestingly, nature here gives me a few important lessons and challenges: my disability is another’s ability, mutual relationship and peaceful coexistence protects and preserves life the

My species is the Ocellaris Clownfish! This is the one that looks like Nemo on Finding Nemo. Its body is an oval shape and has three vertical white stripes outlined with a fine black line. They are saltwater fish and live in an anemone. They live in a core habitat. They have symbiotic relationship with the sea anemone. The anemone gets pesits it doesn't want living on it off of it, and the clown fish gets protection from the tentacles of the anemone. Young clownfish have difficulty finding an anemone to live in. The young clownfish begins at the bottom of the social ladder when it enters an anemone. It is often the victim of aggression by other clownfish. Clownfish are a very social group. They like to live in colonies.There are two types of
Have you ever experienced the death of a beloved pet? If you have, I’m sure it was hard to get through, being so attached. For David Barry, his view is different - experiencing this can be an important lesson for kids. In many other disappointing circumstances, there’s always that one person who attempts - and sometimes succeeds - at being cheery through it. Similar to this type of person, Barry’s writing sheds light on the loss of a pet being an important lesson through humor that may improve the reader’s attitude towards their own loss. David Barry’s short story “I’ve Got A Few Peeves About Sea Creatures” is a high-level comedy that uses sarcasm and various types of comic language to convey the idea that the occurrence of losing a pet can be a teachable experience for a young owner if taken light-heartedly, with an open mind.
Since the beginning of time, mankind has depended on nature for survival. Although, throughout the years society has learned to manipulate nature for their own selfish advantages. In the passage written by Richard Louv, he utilizes rhetorical questions, repetition, and a tone of nostalgia to stress that sad truth about the separation of mankind and nature.
The entire world breaks down by ecosystems and the way those ecosystems function together determine the cohesive success of humanity and nature. Joy Harjo laces this idea fluidly throughout her poem titled “Fishing”. Harjo uses specific poetic elements to exhibit the increasing threat of destruction within ecosystems and the interconnectedness of humanity and nature.
Throughout today’s society there are several different cultural perspectives which form theoretical and practical understandings of natural environments, creating various human-nature relationship types. In this essay, I will describe and evaluate different ways of knowing nature and the impact of these views on human-nature relationships. From this, I will then explore my own human-nature relationship and reflect on how my personal experiences, beliefs and values has led me to this view, whilst highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each and reflecting upon Martin’s (1996) continuum.
“Can you imagine being in a small concrete enclosure for your life when you’re used to swimming 100 miles a day?” This is how captive dolphins live everyday, their natural habitat is swimming miles and miles in the ocean. When they get captured their lives change for the worse. In the past decade Seaworld and captive animals has been a controversial subject. Many people believe the keeping orca whales captive is damaging to the animal and affects them in a negative way. Others believe Seaworld is used to rescue animals and save them. The treatment of animals in captivity is cruel and should be stopped. Keeping animals captive is an appalling punishment.
Animal captivity acts as a broad way for the public to view and enjoy wild species. However, “it transforms helpless, harmless animals into aggressive, agitated monsters” (4). “Wild animals should never be kept in captivity- especially not at SeaWorld Parks” (7), and little did you know that kept Animals in captivity are deprived of their loved ones, their freedom, and their personal will to carry on, which lead to them becoming highly aggressive. The conditions in captivity are horrifying and disgusting. The animals have to have a better place to live in so that they will have the capability of striving. Why do you think so many species are in danger of going extinct? Many believe that SeaWorld is a family-friendly incorporation and an
An average of 30,000 people visit SeaWorld Parks in the United States yearly, however, many of the visitors are unaware of the secrets the parks hide right in front of their eyes. SeaWorld is a popular theme park and marine zoological park with locations in Florida, Texas, and California. They host hundreds of types of marine life and their most popular being their orca whales. Only, these whales, dolphins, and other animals face many challenges in the captivity of the parks. Many of the original animals were taken from their natural home just to become another one of the parks’ pet fish. The whales, dolphins, walruses, and other animals are forced to breed and they become sick and injured too easily in their artificial habitat causing them to die earlier than they inherently should. They, also, pose a threat to the staff and trainers of the park during training and shows. So, the world needs to ban together to condemn Seaworld parks and their dangerous habits across the globe.
The two articles help readers understand that when man and nature are together they create knowledge and emotions. Both writers describe feelings that one might feel when in touch with nature; in different ways, both elaborate on the fact that if man and nature were to disconnect then an imbalance would occur. “The river was
In 1949, Aldo Leopold published the book “A Sand County Almanac”, a book which written as a firsthand explanation of the natural resources and beauties that the Earth has to offer. This book dives into the issues surrounding the disregard for natural wildlife and the need for conservation in order for the natural world to progress and keep thriving. Leopold also talks about different seasons and the beauty of individual animals he comes across, and how their survival is a feat in itself. The importance of environmental conservation and the need to treat nature with care is a vibrant concept that will be explained throughout this paper, as well. This accounting of “A Sand County Almanac” will accurately describe
Holding animals such as killer whales in captivity goes against their natural functions entirely. The facilities humans build provide unnatural living habitats that don’t cater to the enormous size of the animal. They also separate families, something unnatural to how a killer whale lives in the wild. These factors lead the animals to sometimes show aggression against their trainers. Once we question Sea World’s role, it leads to broader implications about the role of humans in the environment. Just because we have the power to hold animals such as these captive, should we? It is vital that the human race learns not to overstep our roles in the natural environment. Even though we have the power, it doesn’t mean we should always use it.
Clown fish are incredible creatures from their origin, to the way they reproduce. They are one of the most unique fish ever to be researched. The clown fish, also known as the anemonefish because of the close relationship they have with anemone, is a small fish that is found around tropical coral reefs in saltwater. Clown fish can grow to be from 2 to 5 inches long, while the males tend to be significantly smaller than the females. The most commonly known species is orange with white markings.
On the other hand, nearly all organisms can exist without humans. There are some exceptions to this, such as endangered species or pets but, in general, most wildlife does not need human presence in order to survive. This is a fact of life and is accepted as an ecological truth. Accepting and understanding our equality with and interdependence on the Earth’s community of life is the first step in adopting the attitude of respect for nature.
In life we are all confronted with the idea of nature along with society. Although both have their pros and cons they work together to give us freedom and order among individuals.
“Splish! Splash!” The sound of bottlenose dolphins jumping and swimming around their tank excites a family at SeaWorld as they wait to experience their first encounter with the dolphins. Every year, bottlenose dolphins bring joy to hundreds of people in both captivity and the wild, but what do people truly know about them? Bottlenose dolphins are actually unique and interesting creatures.
