grade Let’s Protect Homo Sapiens Under the Endangered Species Act

Posted on April 04, 2018

Homo Sapiens, Latin for "wise man”, has been behaving pretty stupidly as of late, driving itself to the brink of extinction.

With numbers approaching 8 billion, it can be difficult to believe that this species qualifies as endangered.  Who are they?  What do we know about the situation?

The Endangered Species Act of 1973 was signed on December 28, 1973, and provides for the conservation of species that are endangered or threatened, and the conservation of the ecosystems on which they depend. 

Up until now, Homo Sapiens, a type of monkey out of Africa, has had tremendous success.  Over the last 200,000 years, it has managed to colonize every single continent, invented farming and automated tools, and has even stepped upon the moon.

But it has also become a victim of such success.  It has driven many other species to extinction—species upon which it depends—warmed the planet with greenhouse gases, polluted its waters, and essentially turned the healthy world upside down, driving us toward sicknesses and all its many forms.  The species is dangerously unsustainable and multiplying at alarming rates.

What can we do?  This is where the Endangered Species Act comes into play.  Its law covers in part the conservation of the ecosystems on which a species depends.  Since the human ecosystem has reached its danger point, humans and their ecosystems thus qualify for protection under the act.

Using such legal nuance, we can take proper steps to ensure its survival, and subsequently the survival of all flora and fauna in general.

This concept has already taken root, but requires you to help it reach new levels.
