Endangered Species

As a species we are very careless about the fate of our fellow dwellers on the planet. What we seem to forget is that we are part of an eco-system. Our existence depends on the balance of that system. Once it tips out of equilibrium, nature will find a new equilibrium for the system. The new equilibrium may not include us. 

Preserving endangered species is needed for or own survival. Our knowledge of complex natural systems is not advanced enough for us to be able to say with certainty what the extinction of some species will mean for our own niche.
