I agree, it is those that need those those fancy rare bobbles that hold the most responsibility here. You would think if they like these things so
much they would try to preserve it, but nah... some sicko mentality takes over that makes someone want the last bit of something. I wouldn't go so far
as to blame our entire species though, we can't just look at the scum among us who drive an extinction or something equivalent, there are plenty who
try to stop this senselessness.

Nope it won't be the last, sadly.

We do, but refer to my above reply. That matters too.

It would be nice to see biotech gain some positive PR for a change.

Well I'm not a meat eater anyway so enjoying meat is already a mental leap I can't make, but hyenas? They're scavengers and wouldn't their meat be
tough and stringy? Gross! I don't think all people should feel ashamed because of what other people do. If shame is a reaction you have, it might be
time to figure out a way to be proactive. You're a very busy guy and a damn hard worker, how you spend your money could make a difference though.

I wouldn't go so far as absolve poachers for sure, but I try to remember that desperate people do desperate things. I'm lucky to not have ever been so
desperate to feed my child that I did something drastic, I have no doubt though that if I had to, I would. I'm not proud of that just that I know my
love for him would win out over anything. I feel like I'm capable of making other choices, but I can't know that for sure.

Everything is connected, pests are just as needed as anything else. I hope everyone figures that out someday and the pesticide peddlers go belly up. I
know it's not nice, sometimes I don't care

This planet in it's current state and we as the dominant species are capable of feeding 12 billion people, that's all about to change very soon though
I fear, we seem to like flooring it to the edge of a cliff.

Last seen in 2006 ?.Odd when the definition of extinct, means a species has not been sighted in fifty years. Yes we are doing damage and it is
digraceful but so are false reports like these. Let me guess they want your Money ? Offically extinct? I don't Think so. 2049 prehaps

Want your money for what, cloning? It is indeed a foundation but I saw no solicitations anywhere. There's no time requirement to declare a species
extinct. The determination of extinct is: When the last of a species dies. It may have once been 50 years (though I didn't find anything searching)
but with todays surveillance... I don't think we need 50 years to rule out survivors.
