Nature's Niches
Song for Teaching About Environmental Niches
Mary Miché


This song is available on Mary Miché's Nature Nuts.

      

Chorus:
I’ve got a niche in nature no matter what you say.
I’ve got a niche in nature and its gonna stay that way.
I’ve got a niche in nature and so do you.
Everything that’s living has a niche in nature too.

Do you know what a niche is? It’s where something fits just right.
Well, nature has niches so that everything fits tight.
We each have a place in nature, whether we’re big or small
If niches are protected, there’s room enough for all.

(Chorus)

Taking a sea urchin from its niche; it’s trouble you see.
‘Cause urchins need water and mud and algae.
There are special things in a seashore niche that help them stay alive.
And if they do not have them, they cannot survive.

(Chorus)

Take an iguana from the desert; it’s a life in jeopardy,
‘Cause iguanas need the desert where it’s hot as can be.
Special things in a desert niche help it stay alive.
And if it doesn’t have them, it cannot survive.

(Chorus)

Take a mountain lion from its niche; that’s destructive you see.
‘Cause mountain lions need space to roam around and be free.
There are special things on a mountain to help her stay alive,
And if she does not have them, she cannot survive.

(Chorus)

Take a kingfisher from its niche; well, that’s not so great,
‘Cause kingfishers need a stream where they can fish and find a mate.
There’s special things in a riparian niche that help them stay alive.
And if they do not have them, they cannot survive.

(Chorus)

Taking an animal from its niche, that will just not do,
‘Cause an animal needs water, food and shelter too.
Animals need environments that help them to thrive,
And if they do not have them, they cannot survive.
