More species are becoming extinct today than at any time since dinosaurs were wiped off the face of the Earth by an asteroid 65 million years ago. Yet this bio-Armageddon, caused mainly by humans, is greeted by most of us with a yawn and a shrug. People have "mourning fatigue." But I think for most people it's just a genuine lack of awareness about the rates of biodiversity loss that we're experiencing.There's an even more important answer to the question, though, which is that we haven't found ways to really understand why it is that extinction matters. We can talk about numbers and the loss of a white rhino or a kakapo. But we haven't developed the kind of story that we need to explain why it is that it matters—what is precious and unique about each of those species.
I feel that many people do not care about mass extinction of animals and only care about what is good or beneficial for them only. When people hear that there is One fewer bat species? I've got my mortgage to pay! Another frog extinct? There are plenty more! I feel that all this people are vey selfish. More events or campaigns should be carried out to raise awareness to people and stop mass extinction.
