    Goes to show that huemans aren't really animals in the aspect of how we're taught. If so, we'd naturally fit within their Circle of Life with no interferences.

    If you don't believe the wiping out of species threatens human civilization, I should remind people of the economic crisis brought on in the '90s by the depletion of cod and striped bass in the Atlantic Ocean. Both species of fish almost went extinct and have only recovered to healthy numbers two years ago.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collap...st_cod_fishery

    I remember it very well because I grew up in eastern Canada, I remember the boarded up storefronts, derelict houses, etc. and then the ensuing rise in crime and subsequent migration of many to Alberta.

    But in some other countries that border the North Atlantic, banks collapsed and some currencies (particularly in Scandinavia) were severely devalued. Yes, disappearing fish did this.

    This country was literally built on the cod fishery and beaver pelt trade. Animal species have built nations, and animal species disappearing can destroy them, so we should be more respectful of nature.

    The eastern stock was also overfished, but not to this extent. This kind of phenomenon is one of the signs that the earth is rather overpopulated, though some people deny that, just because humans physically can fit in a small area of the world. When humans depend on an intricate international collaboration just to get fed, it's obvious that the system can collapse easily.

    Denmark was hit particular hard back then, wasn’t it? Didn’t a bank collapse over there?

    But yeah, the disappearance of cod in the Grand Banks was a huge blow to the economies of many North Atlantic countries. That’s is where cod spawn in the North Atlantic, and it is literally why Canada was founded. England and France fought over control of those waters because so many people all over Europe and even many parts of Africa ate cod because it was a cheap and easily accessible source of protein and they wanted control over that market. Cod was pretty much a staple in the diets of many cultures. No cod, no Canada, pretty much (and probably no United States either because those colonies fished from those waters, and possibly no Jamaica or other Caribbean nations because they traded sugar cane for cod). The history of North America may have been completely different. Other countries depend on it too, for example, when the cod started to get depleted, there was a lot of tension between Canada and Portugal, which, probably in the days before countries dealt with things diplomatically, would have lead to a real war (and indeed, Canadian and Portuguese fishermen were physically fighting with eachother, I think there may have even been some murders). So yeah, destroying species could lead to war as well.
