Be good if the US put them on the endangered list, it would be a step in the right direction.

We must reach a compromise here. Please protect the lions. Thank you.

I feel conflicted about this one -- is it a "natural" evolution of population growth, do the people need birth control and education about the preservation of an endangered species? The create a blockage in my instinctive response - its sad

What animals are not being crowded out? We are destroying our whole planet, as well as every living thing's environment. We need to stop reproducing. Nuture those children that are homeless and in need now.Stop making new babies!

Human overpopulation is the root cause of every problem on the planet.

Get rid of the people everywhere, they are the problem, let all the animals have back their land and their habitats!

Everyone moans about the animals reproducing, but what about humans - baby after baby, some people can hardly look after themselves yet they continue to flood the earth with more humans!! This is why I say, if I can take all the animals off this earth to some other planet and live just with them, I would do it.

You cannot currently send a green star to Leslene as you have done so in the last week.
