Environmental Empathy

Whereas empathy is a feeling we usually direct towards people, developing a deeper level of it allows us to connect better with environment and ecosystems[1]. Seeing animals and plants as living creatures helps to develop more empathy. Perhaps with animals, it is easier because you can see how they feel based on their behavior. With plants, you should engage a bit more imagination and see how they also go through a circle of life.
