Probably 99.99999% of all the species of plant and animal life on Planet Earth became extinct long before the evolution of Homo Sapiens. Species extinction is an essential component of species evolution and must always be allowed to continue unabated.
On the one hand, we all agree that we must take all possible steps to avoid hastening the international worldwide extinction of any species.
On the other hand, we all accept and personally pursue the local extinction of a lot of species. Here are some obvious examples:
