Some are cute, some aren’t, but they’re all important in their own way.
More than 8,000 scientists have identified 100 of the most threatened animals, plants and fungi on the planet.
Conservationists fear these animals may die out, since none offer humans with obvious benefits.
Every animal, no matter what their role, is important to their environment.
Similarly, we shouldn’t let animals die out because they don’t have a benefit to humans.
On the other hand, sometimes animals go extinct. That’s okay. We just need to try to limit extinct species to ones that do so naturally, and not as a result of human interference.
