FIND ONE, LOSE ONE

My generation, and yours, whatever your age, will see more and more species go extinct.  That is a result of what our “civilization” and resource exploitation has done to Earth.  Today we have a promising note, and a dirge.

A salamander not seen in over forty years has been relocated.  Bravo.

Meanwhile, last September, unmourned and largely unnoticed, another amphibian quietly died it its cage, ending another species’ presence on this planet.

Oh well, only a frog.  At least his death didn’t hurt the stock market or bother the fossil fuel industry or the makers of pesticides or despoilers of rain forest.
