One of the animals I regret never having seen are Whales. I know they are endangered but I hope as life resumes that they will be left alone. I have the same feeling about Tigers and Elephants. But there are many creatures that most people have never seen that also are endangered. It doesn’t matter whether its the smallest or largest animal, each have their place in the Web of nature.
As lockdown is reduced, humans are going out and dumping fast food rubbish from their cars. Do they even care? It makes me really angry that eople have no consideration for the environment.
Anyway, rant over. Stay safe.
Yet when they looked back, the gods saw the world was beautiful.
They flew on into space, leaving the blue planet, its fascinating surface, watery and dry, cold and hot.
They had seeded it with bacteria and viruses. They had given it a satellite, called Selene. So the water flowed back and forth, and would eventually encourage life to flow onto the land.
They knew billions of years would pass and agreed to return when, and if, a major species grew up and made efforts to fly beyond the world.
They called the planet Earith, home, Gaia, and waited to see if their seed bed grew.
In May 2020 they returned.
They saw the oceans polluted, the mountains denuded of snow. They saw the glaciers melting and the oceans rising. They could see all the problems.
But they were gods, they could will things to change, eradicate the major species, allow the wilderness to return.
They agreed that this was not possible. Man must learn from its mistakes. Let us return in two millenia and see what has happened they said.
They left, wondering what they would find on their return.
