However, no one would be around to appreciate this fact.

PETA and Greenpeace are entitled to their opinions, but if you’ve ever tried to ask one, you’ll find animals rarely have much of an opinion on environmental degradation or extinction, much less abstract moral and ethical behavior.

Maybe those activists ought to be arguing that biodiversity and long-term, sustainable natural resources are in the best interests of the human race instead of a burdensome responsibility for the sake of organisms with no real ability to appreciate our efforts, eh?
