JUST THINK HOW BIG THE PEARLS WOULD BE. NOT TO MENTION A HELLUVA KICKSTART TO THE COLLECTIVE SEX DRIVE
I'm no biologist -- and I welcome any input from folks who actually know what they're talking about -- but the wildlife officials' plan strikes me as the real interference with the ecosystem, with evolution. Who are we to decide that the stronger species shouldn't get to dominate its environment? At what point does our "tweaking" of the natural world become just as meddlesome as killing off whales or wolves? We've come to agree that it's wrong to capriciously drive a species to extinction, but we seem to think it's just fine to prevent nature from doing so in its own course.
If we could go back 60M years, would we step in to prevent the extinction of the dinosaurs?
