Not a very healthy view. Conservationists are not trying to stall
things. There might be elements that have ulterior motives and hidden
agendas in the conservation movement, but this doesn't excuse the issue.
The problem is over population of one species, us. We live in balance
with all living creatures, in fact we depend on this relationship. Much
like yeast in a fementation vessel soon perish, conservationists are in
reality the ultimate human advocates, rashly daring to imagine a place
for our species in the future.
