"For one species to mourn the death of another is a new thing under the sun.
The Cro-Magnon who slew the last mammoth thought only of steaks.
The sportsman who shot the last [Passenger] pigeon thought only of his prowess.
The sailor who clubbed the last auk thought of nothing at all."
- Aldo Leopold
Maybe Aldo spoke too soon. Maybe, when there's money to be made, there's nothing new under the sun.
