  Weevil Monument
  
  In the town of Endoplas, Alabama, USA, there is a monument to pay tribute to the pest that harms cotton, the weevil. It turned out that the residents here have long lived by growing cotton, but due to the single production and backward planting methods, coupled with the drop in cotton prices in the world at that time, by the end of the 19th century, the local cotton farmers were in a difficult situation. At the same time, weevils spread in large numbers in the southern United States, making it difficult to continue growing cotton. Out of frustration, the townspeople turned to cheese production and other crops. In this way, the local residents actually benefited from misfortune. To thank the weevil, they raised funds to erect a monument in the square.
  
  Caterpillar Monument There is a Caterpillar Monument in Burnag,
  
  Australia , which was built by the locals to thank the caterpillars. At the beginning of the 19th century, some good people transported a batch of cacti from America to Australia for cultivation. The climatic conditions in Australia are very suitable for the growth of cactus. Therefore, the cactus reproduced at an alarming rate and soon became flooded. In 1933 there were only a few million hectares of arable land left in Australia. Humans cannot stop the infestation of cacti, and chemical eradication will cost a huge $2 billion. Later, a group of caterpillars specializing in eating cactus was “imported” from Argentina. As a result, it took only two years to control the vicious reproduction of cactus, and people established this caterpillar monument.
  
  Dolphin Monument There is a special monument
  
  in Hambo Harbor, northern New Zealand, in memory of a dolphin called Obo, Jack.
  Around 1915, a dolphin “pilot” appeared on the sea near Hambo Harbor. The sailors started out on an adventure and then safely followed the dolphin into port. People affectionately call it Oppo-Jack. But one day. Jack disappeared suddenly, and it took hours to find its body in a rocky crevice under the water. When the bad news came out, condolence letters flooded in. The local people put the New Zealand flag on it, held a grand funeral for this faithful friend of mankind, and built a bronze monument.
