Killing Animals That Don't Fit In: Moral Dimensions of Habitat Restoration - by Jo-Ann Shelton.

"I am not suggesting that we abandon our desire to conserve other species, but rather that we develop a system of values which would accommodate the interests of all animals, not just those to which we choose to give preference in our own particular decade or century.

The reasons for shooting bison and shooting feral sheep are similar in that both species were targeted for eradication because they violated our idea of what a particular landscape should look like, and our preference…

Not all that long ago, I realized *this* is my raison…

As we were growing up, our thought processes were maturing, and we…
