Is an individual gorilla more valuable than an individual human being? What is your response to that question? Consider your values!
This short article, written by Bron Taylor, in response to the killing of the zoo Gorilla, Harambe, to “rescue” a child probes these questions.
Several different aspects of the questions are briefly discussed and conclude with the hope that “this tragic event will increase public awareness of the accelerating extinction crisis and the importance of preserving habitat for wild gorillas, and protecting endangered species in captive breeding programs.”
