25. That's a very important point
There's a lot of species-ism out there and conservation efforts in years past were primarily directed not only a single species (rarely a good way to go) but were, even if only for pragmatic reasons, focused on soft and furry animals. Even predators like the tiger were, at least, beautiful to behold in their grace and power and were warm blooded.

There's a good reason why the symbol of the World Wildlife Fund has always been the panda.

Steve took people for a walk on the wild side. What he did for children, through those shows of his directed largely at young audiences (i used to enjoy them, too) will, I hope, help ensure that the next batch of voting citizens do that much better a job with environmental matters than did each of the generations before them.
