Thousands of animals are dying in Oostvaardersplassen

Should animals in a nature reserve be left to starve? This question has become a national controversy in the Netherlands. Here is why.

    To those watching this feeling helpless. Where do I start? What do I do? And at the same time feeling like any action won't go far? It doesn't have to be this way, a simple change can be made and it's power is incredible. It's not just you that could make the world better, it could be all of us in the comfort of our room on our bed. Every day. And it's incredibly easy. A freaking baby could do it. There's an app called Ecosia It takes 80% of its profit from Web searches to plant trees. They also take part in green projects, leading strikes when politics are making choices that can swing either way for the health of our planet or not. So many green movements. It's a search engine (like Google) but greener. No I don't get paid for this I just care so much about our planet and the future. I want to spread awareness that there IS SOMETHING that you can do. Download ecosia on your phone or use as a Web browser on your laptop today and make a difference searching doggos lol Click on the symbol after the link to see more ecosia.org

    It's an experiment its what scientist do! Your not a SCIENTIST if you haven't sacrifice anything for the future success and research. This experiment shows you what would happen if every herbivore are left by themselves without a prey to control their population which then causes them to die out. This video also logically explain with the human population if the population is left unattended this can also happen except worst. This also explain why mother nature has some rules in the ecosystem. Don't misjudge an experiment without thorough observation and deep thinking.

    You can't have an ecosystem without predators. How stupid this is. It's predators that keep the prey animals healthy and in check. If you are going to let them overpopulate then feed them.

    The introduction of predators will create other problems ! The only solution of this unintentional farming is to harvest them for foods for man and his pets !

    This is what happens when men play with Nature ! They never learn from previous experience , such as the introduction of rabbit , dog , Cactus etc in Australia , Carp in North America ......

    An 'ecosystem' without any natural predators. What did they expect? There are no wolves, bears or lynx to hunt them. Its not a real reserve, its fenced in

    “Human Hunters” aka boots on the ground scientific human intervention lol and proper reintegration of natural “predators” = balance. They’ve gotta help rebuild an ecosystem before they attempt to leave it alone.
