Captivity Prevents Extinction

Numerous species have been saved from extinction by captive populations.  When humans block that process, more species die out.  

I have told and told people that separating animals from humans is a death sentence for the animals.  If humans don't love them or find them useful, those animals cease to exist,  And when the numbers get small enough, only heroic action can save them.  Block that and they die.  So lobbying to ban zoos, aquaria, etc. is lobbying for animals to die out.  >_<
