Fresh off of Independence Day here in the U.S., I would like to suggest that we add another special day to our calendars: “Interdependence Day.”

Such an occasion might remind us that we do not exist alone on this planet. In fact, while the rest of the natural world could get along pretty well without humans, the converse is not true.

We need the other organisms of this world in order to survive, let alone prosper. A celebration of our shared fate might help focus our attention on more ways to husband our natural world, rather than exploit it.
