Interesting, informative, and unfortunately a bit sad.

Thanks for a good WP!

An enlightening puzzle, with a few troubling facts presented.
I had never heard of the acronym CITES until this puzzle.
Humans need to love our planet more if we are going to survive.
Well written!

I enjoyed the puzzle too. But - it seems to me that now that scientists can clone animals, there should actually be no animals in actual danger of extinction.

Nonetheless, if we are good stewards of the earth, there's no need for extinction either, except what happens in the natural. As I understand it, many species have gone extinct in the past and do so now, not just by the hand of man (not the kind that are used for eating or other purposes).

Cloning alone wouldn't be a panacea. There'd be issues of gene pool diversity, plus the fact that if any of the factors leading to endangerment were genetic, the clones would have the same weaknesses.

I also recall that the first clones of complex animals anyway seemed to have shorter lifespans than their naturally born cousins.

Thanks for the compliments It was as sad to write as it was for you all to do. Sorry for be depressing in the WP but I thought it was a worthy subject & hopefully will lead to a tiny bit more awareness.
