Ecology is the study of the
interaction between the living creatures of the Earth and their physical
surroundings. It does not matter where in the world you live, the
principles of ecology are the same. We do not live in a world of science
fiction, where humans can travel to any planet they wish. The Earth
is our home. It is our only home, and we must take care of it! The
EcoSearch can help you get in touch with your home.
The activities in the EcoSearch were written with the environment of South Florida in mind. However, if
you don't live here, that's OK! These activities are based on ecological principles
that apply to any natural area in the world. So, even if you
don't live here, you can participate!
