Earthworms. There are 4,400 species of worms - 2,700 of those are different kinds of earthworms.  Worms are important recyclers.  By breaking down organic matter like dead plants, animal droppings, and decaying animals, they create valuable nutrients necessary for rich and fertile soil (Discovery Communications Inc).
