“Regardless of their abundance, each species is part of the gift that has been bestowed upon us. Each has its place, role, and function. As the most intelligent beings on this planet, and those capable of impacting it the most, we have been given the responsibility to allow other organisms their space and to understand their roles and functions as best we can.”
—from the foreword by Gary H. Moody, Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries
