An ecosystem approach is the application of appropriate science to determine ecological functions of a system to ensure appropriate and sustainable use in a balanced and equitable way. (United Nations Convention on Biodiversity)
“Our goal at 8Trees Inc. is to renew an ecosystem approach in applied field ecology as opposed to a single species approach. Our priorities are to mentor biologists and technicians in this method and continue to provide expert advice, stewardship, outreach and educational opportunities when they arise. We are also focusing on research and development of biological tools for field applications.”
A well balanced ecosystem approach provides a positive future for the ecological system. This is important so that future generations can enjoy what we have today.
Aldo Leopold " A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise."
