This time around I reckon we've learned to respect them and have the will to live alongside them.
That was John Muir, the founder of the SC. "Everything is attached to everything," the first precept of ecology.
Though when it came to the CA condor, the largest bird as far as wingspan, the SC decision/vote was to have them go extinct. "Let them die in peace."
Gratefully the people of CA disagreed, and I and everyone can now see these magnificent animals in their natural habitat, growing in numbers thanks to the efforts of dedicated workers and volunteers to bring them back.
By extreme enviros happily encouraged on by the MLC SC, there would be a mass slaughter of wildlife, as by corollary they also cause global warming. Better them than us, so they go!
