Prairie dogs also help aerate and fertilize the soil, allowing a greater diversity of plants to thrive.Conservation of prairie dogs is of great importance to the prairie ecosystem, If hunting continues, the populations will continue to drop and it will be disastrous for the ecosystem of the Great Plains.
