Of the humans I do know that are worth saving, even if it's a measly five, I am sure there are hundreds of thousands more worth saving.
To the original post: Animals need zoos like we need anti-pollution acts, recycling programs and all that; they are band-aid solutions to the real
problems, in some cases. But seemingly necessary evils, for the time being at least. We live in this 'modern world' where we think we're the 'it'.
Unfortunately, as many of us realize, the plight the cast of our die has laid out, we suffer the progress of our civilization
Only if our cities were built around the ecosystem, in a sort of harmony with the earth and its plants and animals, instead of segregating, limiting
and destroying territory and diversity, would we then have learned the value in our selves as a species. I'm not trying to be all new-agey farty-warty
and dream utopic, only, these are the kind of ideals I think we could learn to forward our selves.
It's sad that things happen like Cecil and Harambe, it's almost sadder the more these topics are exploited when they occur, for varying agendas.
Animals shouldn't be caged. Humans shouldn't have domination over the earth. We should understand this.
