We can use our knowledge about ecology in our everyday lives.
We can better understand the relationships that happen in the ecosystems around us that occur every day.
For example, we could better understand the predator-prey relationship between birds and fish and its impact on this body of water.
We can also use this knowledge to determine how we are involved in the ecology around us.
For example, fair-goers leaving food helps small animals that live in this environment. In this case, we are helping the environment.
Another example is the pollution of this factory harming local wildlife and contaminating local resources. In this case, we are harming the environment. Through our knowledge of ecology, we can better understand our impact on the world around us.
