Context: Human activities cause many environmental changes, and because of that many species cannot adapt to them and gradually become endangered. Many of the activities that humans have done for their own prosperity have harmed other species and even contributed to their endangerment. People cut down trees to expand their farming fields or build dams for their own benefit, all of which destroy the habitat of other creatures.
Disruption: When human well-being is based on endangered species, do we have a moral obligation to stop harming them? When a farmer lives by farming, is it morally reasonable to ask them to give up farming in order to preserve the forest?
Response: I believe that according to the idea of deep ecology that when human survival or well-being has to threaten the existence of another species, it is permissible to act in ways that lead to the extinction of that species. As a member of the biosphere, human development and prosperity are equally important
