Penguins and Leopard Seals

In Antarctica, there lives penguins and leopard seals.

These two organisms share a relationship called predation.

It happens when a predator (leopard seal) and a prey (penguins) interact with each other where the predator hunts the prey.

Both organisms are consumers and predators in the arctic tundra;

but in this situation, the penguin is the one to be hunted.

With that said, abiotic and biotic components of the ecosystem can also be observed in the relationship between the two organisms.

If the abiotic components (i.e. the ocean and the natural habitat) did not exist, then so wouldn't the two organisms.


This is because 1.) the two organisms have adapted to a certain environment and living in another (i.e. the tropical region of the Earth) would risk their safety; and

2.) if this biome did not exist, its organisms wouldn't exist either.

On the other hand, if biotic components in this biome didn't exist, then the whole food chain would be affected- in a bad way.

Take fish for example.

If they didn't exist at all, the organisms that used to rely on this organism as food would have a large decrease in their popularity;

and if that organism decreases, they will eventually grow extinct.

This process can go on until the whole planet grows instinct.

If you think about it, the evolution of our kind can relate to this in terms of what I just mentioned in the previous paragraph.

If organisms become extinct, there will be an imbalance of life here on Earth.

Trees would be cut down and someday wouldn't grow back anymore because there aren't enough resources for them.

Humans would stop evolving because we would have grown extinct as well.

This is why it is important to be kind to the environment.

Humans are supposed to be the organisms who protect the earth, not hurt it.

We have to be the ones who set the balance in the ecosystem.

We make everything equal.
