The Guardian reports today that some of the world’s most endangered marine life could be saved from extinction by establishing mobile nature reserves that would protect vulnerable species as they moved around the oceans, scientists say. Only in recent years has the concept become plausible because of improvements in satellite imaging and GPS tagging of species. With these technologies, marine biologists have learned in great detail the movements of different sea creatures.
We could also introduce legislation for human inhabitation of the planet whereby we can live, not in fixed places, but with the seasons, ‘dancing’ around the life cycles of other species in a vast choreography of the planet. But first we must learn to see all things with equanimity.
