Western Black Rhino Declared Extinct
So upsetting. I don’t understand how humans are allowed to do this. It seems so incredibly antithetical to the natural order of things.
Would a group of lions ever go and kill all the zebras and the antelopes and the wildebeests and the wild hares and the hippos etc. and so forth? of course not, because that would be insane. they’d have nothing left to eat, and neither would all the other animals, which would mean everyone would start eating each other or die of starvation. and anyway, what would they do with all the excess? you can’t put a wildebeest in tupperware for leftovers. especially not when you’re a lion.
but that’s what we do. we eradicate whole species, constantly.
it makes me so mad. we shouldn’t be allowed to do this.
i will post again soon with things we can do to help other causes and be proactive about preserving what we still have on this beautiful planet.
but right now, i want to take a moment to acknowledge the loss of this animal, which could have and should have been prevented, and hope that its disappearance will somehow help raise awareness for others in the same plight.
