Endangered Species

We humans are not in the least interested in protecting endangered species. We have hogged 98% of the habit for ourselves and for our domestic animals. What excites us is bigger markets that come from having ever more people. We stole all that land from other species for ourselves, without the tiniest moral qualm. Our religions convinced us we were the paragon of animals, the only species that matters. The most common justification for protecting a species is so we can harvest them. Other species have no intrinsic value.
