Should humans be concerned with the extinction rate?

  • We need to worry!!!

    We would have to become vegans and eventually we would not have enough crops to feed us because crops take OVER 9000 days to grow etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc!

  • We may join the fossil record with the rest of the animals and planets we are killing off.

    Bio diversity is a big deal. We use plants and animals for food and medicine. What if we kill off a resource that may have helped us survive a future disease. The more resources we have the better off we will be, otherwise we just may join the fossil record our self.

  • Yes in many aspects

    Like habitat destruction, hunting, exploitation and urbanization is playing a crucial role in species extinction..... Habitat loss and degradation is considered the most significant factor. In New Zeal-and, the biggest threat is introduced species.Other factors include over-exploitation, pollution, disease and climate change. Some species may be affected by a combination of factors. Species that have a very limited habitat or small population size are particularly vulnerable to extinction.

  • Yes we should

    Humans are the only sentient species on this planet so it is our responsibility to look after the other species especially the ones that are becoming endangered because of us.We are the only ones who can change this trend of endangerment and it is our moral responsibility to do this.

  • Of course they should

    Yes after all one our purposes for existing in the first place is to protect the animals and look after their well-being and if we do not then who will? If there is an extinction that can be prevented then it is our duty as human beings to do whatever we can to prevent it.

  • Food Supply & Demand

    With the ecological devastation man has done to Earth over the past few centuries, the food chain has been critically disrupted - and it's worsening nonstop. Eventually the basic demands of animal life (food & water) will be greater than the supply, and when they cannot be met, all animals - humans included - will diminish. Perhaps we humans will utilize our intelligence to not perish as a species, but our numbers will reduce dramatically.

  • Yes We're Next

    I think that we should definitely be concerned with the extinction rate. If we took a closer look at the amount of species becoming extinct then we would see the error of our ways in how we are treating the environment and the rate at which we are destroying the planet and the other animals in it, then we will inevitably be next and hopefully make a change for the better.

  • Of Course!

    Only if it is animals we are talking about. Humans are never going to be extinct, but animal species in the Rain forest should be considered first and foremost.Animals have a sacred place in the environment and play a key role in our everyday lives.We should all be concerned about this because these things are important.

  • All great things come to an end.

    I was always taught that great things always come to an end. Nothing lasts forever. I think people need to understand this concept. Human beings will cease to exist eventually. This is an inevitable fate of everything in life. I believe that there is really nothing we can do to prevent this and we should embrace the reality of life. Humans should spend less time being concerned with the extinction rate and focus on living life to the fullest.

  • No we don't need to worry

    Who would want to spend their life worrying? We don't have to because with death comes life and that will repeat until earth ends or our Sun explodes. Life comes with a price and that is death,so why worry when death will come to every thing one day? So don't worry about the future and just live you life in the present.

  • Extinction rate of what?

    Over 99% of every life form on this planet is now extinct. It's natures way. The world is full of change and if plants and animals can't adapt they go extinct. It's just the way of the world. Those people jumping up and down about it are just trying to scare people and get your money.
