“Before the clumsy hand of man interfered, tortoises in these islands had a life expectance of well over a century. Two centuries of indiscriminate slaughter pushed them to brink of extinction.”
Then people are really the main cause of extinction. Only if people don’t interfere with them, we could find a lot of them right now. It is a sad thing to know that most of them are already extinct. On the other hand, if we keep slaughter them, don’t you think someday in a million years ahead, we will get massacre ourselves?
