Does Technology destroy our relationship with Nature?

I am an environmental Literature student, and I am interested in people's responses about the constitution of Nature, Technology, and the relationship that is apparently slowly being degraded with Nature.

All responses are welcome.

We live in a world that is basically 'human only' where nature is carefully groomed, pets and pests are the only animals seen. This disconnect causes a sort of mental drift where we are becoming more like our machines than we should be.
