Time and again, we have seen heroic efforts in species conservation pay off. The California condor continues to recover. The bald eagle, our nation’s symbol, has thrived to the point of coming all the way back to a status of Least Concern. There are once again thousands of gray wolves, in four distinct populations.
It’s time to rally again, folks.
We need to save the pubic louse.
Apparently, the popularity of the Brazilian wax and related depilatory procedures (in both sexes) is devastating pubic louse populations. We are thoughtlessly destroying this animal’s natural environment.
Now I’m certain we don’t want to pretend to be justified in determining the relative values of the world’s creatures. If we have learned anything over the past few decades of conservation education and awareness, it’s that all species are important. All animals bring their respective unique majesties to the mosaic of life.
So let’s save the crabs!
