Whenever I read a book of non-fiction such as this - It really breaks my heart to know that it is (Indeed) us humans who are the main reason why so many plants and wildlife on this diverse planet are now on the endangered species list (and that list is steadily growing).

Let's face it, folks - If we humans don't seriously change our tune (ASAP!!) about our endless polluting, our selfish over-population, our tunnel-visioned arrogance, our blindly forging ahead, etc., etc. - Then - You can be sure - What is being listed today as endangered will undoubtedly be destined for extinction by this time tomorrow.

Yep. It's a mighty sad, sad story like no other. Indeed.
