Reblogged from Life is but a Labyrinth
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.
