Ecology is defined as both the relationships and interactions between organisms, complex systems, or people, and their environments, and advocacy for the protection for the environment.  Environmentalist David Suzuki describes the consequential environmental ethics from considering this entanglement: ‘We are creatures of Earth, created of stardust, energised by the sun, carrying within us fragments of the first life-forms – evidence of our kinship with every other creature on the planet’. Suzuki describes science and technology’s reductionist influence creating disconnections with nature and instead calls for rebalance.
