In Defense of Biodiversity: Why Protecting Species from Extinction Matters.

Naturalist, Biologist, Environmentist, Citizen-scientist,
re-new your vision and enthusiasm for the organisms you see and seek the reason . . . it is the most noble quest to contact other beings from your home planet, your backyard, your park or natural reserve. Your pictures give them a voice in a world where they are increasingly voiceless. Your insistance that that they exist gives their lives a resistance to the asphalt and concrete of our urban world, our insistance to change the atmosphere, you proved the persistence that they too, are here. Keep on keepin' on.


A number of biologists have recently made the argument that extinction is part of evolution and that saving species need not be a conservation priority. But this revisionist thinking shows a lack of understanding of evolution and an ignorance of the natural world.
