What's up? TORTOISE BUTT! Saw this little guy or girl in the driveway the other day.

They're what's called a keystone species in this ecosystem and I love that we have so many of them because it also means we have a…

Some Animals Are More Equal than Others: Keystone Species and Trophic Cascades

A keystone species, i.e. sea otters' role in their environment has a greater effect than other species. As predators, sea otters are critical to maintaining the balance of the near-shore kelp ecosystems. W/o them, the undersea animals they prey on would devour the kelp forests off the coast that provide cover & food for many marine animals. They indirectly help to reduce levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, a prevalent greenhouse gas, as kelp forests play important role in capturing carbon
