Can you think of a situation where we deliberately want to make a species extinct? How would you justify it?

1 Answer

However, in certain cases, deliberate extinction of a species may be considered as a necessary action to protect other species or the ecosystem as a whole. For example, invasive species that have been introduced to an ecosystem can cause significant harm to native species and disrupt the ecological balance. In some cases, eradication of the invasive species may be the only way to protect the native species and restore the ecosystem. Similarly, in cases where a particular species is a vector for a dangerous disease or has become a nuisance due to overpopulation, deliberate extinction may be considered as a way to protect public health and safety.

However, it is important to note that any action aimed at deliberately causing the extinction of a species must be based on scientific evidence and should be carefully considered to minimize harm to other species and the environment. In general, it is preferable to focus on conservation efforts to protect and preserve endangered species and their habitats rather than resorting to deliberate extinction.
