We are busy trying to save species from becoming extinct

Reblogged from Life is but a Labyrinth

Atlantic_City_T_Rex_bu_themechanismI read an article on extinction this week that made me think.

We are busy trying to save species from becoming extinct. But nature has been extincting species for millions of years.

Just imagine… Walking down to the corner shop for a loaf of bread on a quiet sunny Sunday humming to yourself and you are confronted by a giant snarling Tyrannosaurus Rex. OMG, shades of Jurassic Park!

Sort of put you off your lunch, wouldn’t it?

Isn’t it just as well that Mother Nature in her wisdom made them extinct?

While it’s nice that we have pretty species, like tigers and elephants and rhinos, and I realise their extinction is largely being driven by man, are we perhaps not going against the grain.

Look at whales…

Are we actually doing a disservice to them?

There’s a whole lot to think about there.

    Good point. Climate change is going to kill off lots of plant and animal species, in this case it seems pointless saving them as where are humans going to locate them if they are unable to survive natural conditions?
