Nature’s guardians: Large herbivores prove key allies in protecting ecosystems

In a remarkable discovery, a recent study by Aarhus University and the Wildlife Institute of India reveals that large herbivores are nature’s unsung heroes in the battle against invasive plants. Contrary to concerns, these majestic creatures not only safeguard native flora but also aid in curbing invasive species.

The research, conducted in India, spotlights the vital role of mega-herbivores like elephants and rhinos. However, the good news is that even slightly smaller herbivores, like water buffalo and cattle, can join the fight elsewhere, offering hope for global biodiversity preservation efforts.
