I don't think folks want anything "natural". There's nothing natural about us keeping tropical fish in non-tropical climates, in glass or in my case plastic boxes, lol.It is that weird paradox of folk wanting something 'natural' in their home
Folks want unique, something the others don't have, the "wow" factor they can boast about. Nature and habitat destruction is just something one reads on the news and forgets about.
We were in a local park the other day on a lovely day. The park is quite big with plenty of area to walk around. There are a couple of lakes and a river passing through. 80% of the people were sitting in the wooden tables and benches area, having a beer "in nature", grilling meat, making noise, throwing rubbish and generally messing up. That's nature experience for most people.
Our dog is totally not friendly with other dogs and we can't let her off the leash. Guess what, she had a massive stretch of a field for herself to run around like a lunatic as most people were sitting around where the "fuss and buzz" is, and the dogs standing there like tools.
