It is called management of an endangered Florida endemic species. Thank you for your cooperation.
Ya know, I get the whole "save the endangered species" thing. But if you think about it, the world has had many species go extinct going back hundreds of millions of years with Mammoths and T-Rexes and such. And the world seems to have done just fine, and even flourished I guess. Do I really care that I never got to see a Passenger Pigeon? Never even have given it a second thought. Don't care at all. Maybe its the whole "evolution" and "survival of the fittest" thing that the left has promoted for decades in place of creationism (just to note there can be evolution WITH divine creation). So isn't this just evolution and survival of the fittest at work? Man after all is THE fittest. So Man will find a way to survive to the detriment of other species if that what it takes.
So I may sound callous but I could not give 2 cents of care about this Sparrow. Don't wish it any unnecessary harm and wish it would flourish, but if it is in such a precarious position that its very existence depends on whether Man merely has a presence in its territory or not, Id say it has already gone the way of the Passenger Pigeon.
So why are we expending so much time and energy and money for this bird? Especially in this high growth state in which we reside? Just because it has a distinct DNA and range and a few features that make it slightly distinguished from all the other Sparrows that visit my yard?
