Part of the problem is that we have already changed the natural environment
to such an extent that, in many cases, intervention is necessary.  For
example, the patchwork of wooded and open spaces in the area where I live
(Michigan) is a much better habitat for deer than the dense forests that
existed about 200 years ago.  The deer also have an easy source of food in
the corn fields that are common here.
