A few days ago, I visited a construction site of an apartment complex. There I saw scores of monkeys jumping around and creating havoc. Upon investigating a little deeper, I discovered that prior to the construction there used to be a small patch of trees where these monkeys used to live.
It got me thinking. We have destroyed the home of these monkeys to make homes for ourselves. Is this what makes us the most ‘advanced’ species of the planet? I read a National Geographic report that 100-1000 species are lost per million per year.
Are we just colonizers who exploit nature as long as it is useful to us, and leave it to fend for itself once its utility is exhausted?
What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
