Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:
Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.
Way to go, humanity.
what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it
I don’t understand why extinction is sad or even bad. Isn’t it just natural selection at work?
But it wasn’t a NATURAL selection though…
Natural selection, in an obscenely short definition, is the collective effect of genetic variability, heredity in combination with the external environment, resulting in specific genomes (species) flourishing in a given time/place.
This extinction was caused by overhunting, mainly for their horns to be used in medicine, and habitat destruction, as well as wastefully harvesting their resources.
Natural selection and extinction are NOT the same thing. Especially in this case. I think he (tokillthedragon) thinks Natural Selection can be quickly understood in a 10 second google search. And Ramez is right, nothing about that shit is natural.
