We have already encroached enough on Cootes Paradise, and the result is an "extinction debt". We loose about a species per year from Cootes because of all of the vegetation we have already converted to roads and pathways. If we cease paving our parks, the extinction debt will eventually be paid and the loss of species will slow to zero. If we continue to pave our parks, the loss of species will not slow but will continue. Eventually we will all have easy access to all of the places where wildlife used to be.
