Yes.... even the iconic American Bison where once on the endangered species list. Crazy right?
So why did we even save them from extinction? What does it matter if animals large, small or every size make and model in between are here or not? I mean since life began species have come and gone on earth right? Yet, most rendered by naturally changing physical and biological conditions. So why spend precious money on saving any of them? How do we as a society benefit from protecting them?
