Question and answer
Q: How do the extinctions of other creatures affect humans directly and indirectly?
A: If the animal is a staple in the diet of humans, it may have a direct impact on the diet of humans such as if the tuna went extinct. [ If the animal is not a staple, it may still have an impact due to the fact that it may be a key food source for another animal which is a staple of the human diet. If plankton went extinct, everything that ate them, such as most fish, would then go extinct. Just
as if honeybees became instinct, the pollination of our crops and produce would cease. Beyond just eating animals, the extinction of creatures can affect our lives in other ways. A poll by the American Museum of Natural History finds that seven in 10 biologists believe that mass extinction poses a colossal threat to human existence, a more serious environmental problem than even its contributor, global warming; and that the dangers of mass extinction are woefully underestimated by almost everyone outside science. ]
