Open-Billed Storks arrived in Singapore and flew towards Kranji Marshes, a bird sanctuary which is closed to the public. The Kranji Marshes was very near a BBC relay station. The relay station had towering satellite towers that were visible from a distance. These communication satellites and other hi-rise buildings dominate the landscape. When the Open-Billed Storks flew to a bird sanctuary on the first evening to avoid all human contact, it made an impression on me. While observing the storks from a nearby observation tower, I realised that much of our communication and control of our landscape is mainly for the benefit of one species - humans. We have failed utterly to consider how our everyday actions affect the lives of non-human species.
