There will be no tomorrow...

For numerous species there is no tomorrow. They are gone; the more sorely missed the more recent their demise. For thousands and thousands more there will be no tomorrow. They are the living dead, past the point of no return, inexorably on the path to extinction even if people don't know it yet. It is conceivable that some species may still hang on in a bleak and impoverished world. Which category will we fall into? Unlike the other species, we have no one but ourselves to blame—unless we blame our predecessors and our contemporaries. One single species is to blame for all this. What does one do when a growth out of control threatens the viability and health of the whole?
