Not A Conservationist

I am not basically a conservationist. When the last great whale is slaughtered, as it surely will be, the whales’ suffering will be over. This is not the whales’ loss, but man’s. I am not concerned about the wiping out of a species — this is man’s folly — I have only one concern, the suffering which we deliberately inflict upon animals whilst they live.
