Keystone Species Giving Levels
Mycelia, a component of fungus, are vital in the decomposition of plant material. They expand the capacity of trees to absorb water and nutrients.
Honeybees are responsible for assisting plant reproduction via pollination and help maintain and increase the genetic diversity of their ecosystem.
Hummingbirds influence the persistence of several plant species through pollination.
SEA STAR $50,000
Sea stars eat mussels and other shellfish, preventing these creatures from consuming the habitat’s kelp and taking over the ecosystem.
SEA OTTER $25,000
Sea otters regulate sea urchin populations, allowing enough kelp forests to remain as a habitat for a variety of other species.
Cacti provide shelter and shade to many small animals, who are then consumed by larger desert animals.
GREY WOLF $5,000
Grey wolves regulate deer populations, allowing trees to thrive and remain as a habitat for several other species.
SUGAR MAPLE $1,000
Sugar maples are the habitat of many insects, birds, and animals. Their foliage provides shade to keep the ground cool and moist so earthworms and other insects can thrive and enrich the soil.
