Are some species more important to save from extinction than others?

    This question is particularly difficult to answer because it depends on your personal ethics. There are specific species that impact the environment and the food chain more than others. These species are called keystone species. Technically, a keystone species is one that has a larger impact on the environment relative to its abundance. A classic example is one of a starfish. The starfish predates on a specific species that would otherwise cause disproportionate damage to the surrounding areas. If the starfish were to disappear, the damage caused by the prey species would not be stopped.
