Where has the wild life gone?

I have lived on Fairview Lake twenty years. During that time the wild life population has decreased. this summer especially animal life is noticeably scarce. Only one turtle has been seen sunning on a log. Only one bull frog bellows at night. The chirping of hundreds of small frogs in the evening has been silenced. Instead of several Osprey, only one has been perched for fishing up in a tree. Spiraling, jumping of golden carp is seldom seen this year. No snakes have been seen on shore. No river otters have slid over the weir this summer. Not one fingerling small mouth bass has been seen. Eagles are still present Five were seen at one time soaring over the lake. There are no great white egrets this year. What has threatened wild life survival in Fairview Lake?
