For every action there is a reaction. We need to stop our actions that cause the degradation of their habitat, their environment, our environment Now. Thank you, Kayleen. Noted and shared

Well said Ruth. Work on saving wildlife, stop destroying rain forests, save whales and all sea and ocean life and man"kind" will have a chance, but greed is man's greatest enemy and therefore the enemy of all life forms.

Most humans are too self centered to see the importance of the balance of nature. We have destroyed it and now we may pay for it.. for those who are so involved in their own interests (protecting their massive ranches and factory farms, killing wantonly all the predators, etc.) hopefully they will pay for what they do. Sadly we may all pay for what they do. The animals and environment are suffering for deeds and they don't give a damn. so I will feel no sadness for what happens to the fools responsible.

This planet and it's wildlife would be so much better off if mankind became extinct.

If we can't live in compassionate balance we will certainly die out. It is not survival of the fittest but survival of the most cooperative..

So sad. These creatures were place here for a reason. Not to be killed by mankind taking away their areas of living. Thanks Kayleen

The balance of Nature must be left to its own devices without interference. Polar bears are having trouble with climate change and many other species face a drastic decline in numbers or even extinction.
