What is man without the beasts?

This statue is located in the center of the B concourse in the Greater Rochester NY Airport. It depicts five Native American animal statues with a quote from Chief Seattle inscribed at the base that reads:
"What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth."
Chief Seattle - Suqwamish & Duwamish
