COYOTES AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY:
******************************************
Environmental sustainability doesn't just stop with preserving the chemical composition of our environment. Preserving the biosphere is a key objective of sustainability initiatives around the world and in fact, it is the end-goal of such initiatives. Coyotes are a 'keystone species', meaning that their presence or absence has a significant impact on the surrounding biological community. By exerting a top-down regulation of other species, coyotes maintain the balance in the food web below and around them. When coyotes are absent or even just greatly reduced in a natural area, the relationships between species below them in the web are altered, putting many small species at risk. That is the environmental sustainability motivation for our work. For more details, please visit our web site: https://www.ai4coyotes.org/.
