    Is it really a wild, wild world? With the encroachment of human kind into the wilderness, living organisms and the places where they live may no longer be as wild as they once were. During this class we will examine places on the earth that have been identified as “irreplaceable.” We’ll focus on the environment of each site, the plants and animals that live there as well as what would happen if that environment disappeared. And for you crossword puzzlers we’ll answer the age old question “a nine letter word for an Australian bird that doesn’t fly!”
