S.O.S. (Save Our Species)

A pint-sized protest for Project SoulPancake, and a sort of belated Earth Day idea.

 

Did you know that 9 out of 10 dinosaurs would probably agree that we should treat our planet better?

 

Did you know that in a generation or two, we could be reading storybooks to children and pointing at elephant pictures saying "i remember when these were actually still ALIVE."?

 

Okay, let's try something harder.

 

Did you know that the background extinction rate is somewhere around 10 species per year (one extinction per million species per year), but with the help of ours truly (ourselves), the number of species lost is estimated at between 27 and 30 THOUSAND per year. And yeah, mostly that's bugs and plants and stuff, but still.

 

My point is, extinction sucks. And it's forever. And we should do all we can to prevent it. At the very least, we should get all Jurassic Park-y, and reverse it. Just kidding on that last part. I think that's a terrible idea.
