Would you save the dinosaurs in the 'Jurassic Park' universe?
Activists and supporters of PETA said saving the dinosaurs "would be a tall order," but animal rights groups would definitely want the living creatures to be free. While PETA would not have brought back the dinosaurs, the organization would definitely protect the rights of dinosaurs. Lisa Lange, PETA Senior Vice President, told Vice's Noel Ransome:
A dinosaur? Hmm, that would be a tall order, but managing animals isn't how PETA rolls really. We'd never want any species to be exploited for some out-of-touch notion of entertainment. It's why we leaned hard on Ringling Bros. circus and why we continue to lean hard on SeaWorld. It's why we free bears from roadside zoos and why we'll be at the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain, next month[...]
We'd give them their own island, sans volcano, so that they could live freely without endangering humans, who are animals, too. Doesn’t seem too difficult. But going back even further, we wouldn't have resurrected them in the first place just for them to end up being hunted or sold. Often, when animals are put on the endangered list, like wolves have been, they're reintroduced to areas that they used to call home only to be hunted again when their numbers reach a certain point. It's a cruel, vicious cycle.
But detractors argue it wouldn't make sense to let a species live that could threaten current life.
my problem with the whole jurassic world save the dinosaurs is the fact that the current ecosystem is not suitable for their survival. i appreciate saving and protecting animals but even if they were able to be recreated it wouldn’t make sense for them with earth’s natural order.
And Dr. Ian Malcolm, played by the iconic Jeff Goldblum, agrees. CBR's Narayan Liu wrote:
Ian Malcolm’s brief return to the franchise represents the Jurassic World trilogy’s intention to dive deeper into the largely environmental themes that drove the franchise and Michael Crichton’s novels in the beginning. It shows that this is more than just a monster film, it’s a warning. That’s especially true of the second and final time Malcolm appears in the film, reminding everyone in that committee and the film’s audience that “we’re causing our own extinction. Too many red lines have been crossed, and our home has– in fundamental ways– been polluted by avarice and political megalomania.”
