The first step in ecology is looking around. Your house is a good place to start.
It’s perfect for a big mammal like you. Yet, it’s also home to spiders and insects. Maybe even the occasional mouse. Just outside are birds, squirrels, frogs, grasses, trees, flowering plants, rocks, dirt, and even more insects. When you look around at living things and their environment, you are involved in the study of ecology.
