My name is January Thompson. I am a singer songwriter who has always found a deep connection between music and nature. I have created this site in hopes to raise awareness and empathy about critically endangered keystone species by providing information on each of these species and charities that are devoted to their survival and protection and also sharing artists and musicians works who are helping to join the fight for the ones that can not fight for themselves.
In the words of Dr. Lucy Spelman "We can save all creatures/nature/ourselves but we need inspiration, and that must come from the artists of the world; they, in turn, must be informed enough to point people in the right direction. We need all forms of visual art, design, and music to elevate nature, rather than denigrate it."Each of these Keystone species are intrinsically linked to our survival. The role that a keystone species plays in its ecosystem is analogous to the role of a keystone in an arch. While the keystone is under the least pressure of any of the stones in an arch, the arch still collapses without it.
Similarly, A keystone species plays an important role in maintaining and balancing the structure of an ecological community and affecting many other organisms within this community. The loss of elephants or any of these others from one particular area would mean that all the biological interactions and ecosystem processes in which they are involved, would also be lost. We are literally breaking a part. Let us try to mend what is left before it's too late.
