    Frightening isn’t it, how easily animals CAN become extinct. Why, I was only thinking this morning how gorgeous pandas are , yet there are only 100o or so left in the world. Maybe 999 now as I write. What can we do to help?

  2. Thanks. I can totally accept the extinction of a species that is brought about by a naturally evolving process but when it’s at the exploiting hands of humans and is not a neccessary means of survival, then it’s a violation – a gratuitous abuse of our planet and it’s life-dwellers.
