Nature and Ethics
The images depicted below, just like the ones above, are meant to arouse in people a feeling a guiltiness for what human beings have increasingly destroyed. The Giant-Sized Pitcher Plant from Malaysia, which goes by the scientific name of Nephentes, is considered to be critically endangered by the World Conservation Union. This is in part due to the loss of habitat as well as cutting down the species. This gives rise to the question: do we have the right to complete obliterate this or any species? In my opinion, displays like these only motivate me to fight in the name of endangered organisms, to be able to admire the land, as Leopold states. In many cases, the displays on extinction also angered me thoroughly, because it made me realize what a huge role humans have played in the demise of so many species.
