pow_pow~millions of species have gone extinct over the last few hundred million years without any human help. it is a natural occurrence.
im not saying they should keep killing rhinos, im just pointing it out.
Millions of species have gone extinct naturally, yes, however living in a more bio-diverse world is beneficial to all life. When human's cause even a local extinction, it hurts the entire ecosystem.
In Jackson Hole, farmers spent decades killing off an entire wolf-pack to save more cattle. In turn, elk quickly overpopulated the area, and ate much more grass. They collapsed stream banks by overeating the grass, and the stream water became too dirt filled for the fish population to survive well. This hurt the population of all the fish eaters. Including tourism for fly fishing.
We will never kill all life, but every time we over hunt or destroy food sources, we usually end up hurting ourselves and many other species along the way.
That's stupid. No one wants to be seen as stupid. Except for Australians.
