Marveling at the Extinction of Organic Beings

“Nevertheless so profound is our ignorance, and so high our presumption, that we marvel when we hear of the extinction of an organic being; and as we do not see the cause, we invoke cataclysms to desolate the world, or invent laws on the duration of the forms of life!”

― Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species

From the National Wildlife Federation:
Threats to sandhill cranes include habitat loss, wetland loss, and development. Two subspecies of sandhill crane are federally listed as endangered on the endangered species list: the Mississippi sandhill crane and the Cuban sandhill crane.

There is nothing to marvel about here.  The cause is crystal clear. We have the capacity to change the way we live and walk lightly in the world.
