    WI3: the article IS kind of stupid, but yeah, the “charismatic megavertebrates” get all the press, when the little things like soil invertebrates are probably what’s keeping life on this planet going. But little non-furry things are a hard sell to most people; I remember all the sneering over protecting snail darters, and they’re even vertebrates.

    “If we can clone Barbra Streisand’s dogs”

    Not sure if that was kinda tongue in cheek, but we understand dogs WAYYYYY better than we understand whales, or pandas, or etc. Genetically as well as in other ways. Experimenting with dog breeding goes back 100s of years.Report
