“Selling the Protected Area Myth” by Richard Coniff, a contributing opinion writer, in The New York Times (6/10/18). “[Change] will at times entail setting aside our profits and our precious convenience . . . But the alternative is to spend our lives in a world increasingly without wildlife.”  A related biblical theme: “They will not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain; for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea”  (Isaiah 1:9)
