Deep ecology

From Wikipedia, slightly edited:

Deep ecology argues that the natural world is a subtle balance of complex inter-relationships in which the existence of organisms is dependent on the existence of others within ecosystems. Human interference with or destruction of the natural world poses a threat therefore not only to humans but to all organisms constituting the natural order.

Deep ecology advocates wilderness preservation, human population control and simple living.


The deep ecology view argues that human communities are built upon a foundation of the surrounding ecosystems or the biotic communities.
