    The ultimate goal of life is to survive and continue to exist. In order to achieve that goal a secondary goal is to reproduce, maintain water, food, shelter, warmth, and security. I think most animals have these goals in common with us, probably because we are evolved animals.

    Insure that the future generations of our descendants have a good place to call home by taking care of this planet while we are here the best we can. If we cannot protect nature enough while we are alive then we have failed in our ultimate responsibility.

    Pick up after your self . It is the most Nobel of things you can ever do .
    Thank you if you do . Fuck you if you don't

    We have a saying when we enter the wilderness that describes it best
    Pack in , Pack out.
    There is more to life than just Humans . Other creatures have to live in this environment too

    High Five , On the down low , behind the back . Right on . Except I think Protect should be changed to Managed . Management can include preservation also . It can include protection also . It is better equipped to realize emergencies also. Manage Nature . Manage forests to insure health. The Natural state is not always what one would consider healthy . Especially when an abrupt change occurs. I seen a river change its course once . Ice Dams did it . It happen in one season . Very freaky for Me as in all my years it only happened in front of Me that one time . The effects were not to terribly bad to the naked eye . Business as usual kind of thing . Not even a dead fish . But smaller creatures ? Yeah they probably had a tough go of it .

    You described the goal of a species, not necessarily of the individual.

    If we don't have a goal of establishing our species on another planet, we are doomed to die out as soon as a big asteroid or nuclear war happens.

    If we don't take care of this planet Earth, there won't be humans around to reach for the stars.

    I agree, if we aren't thinking long term sustainability here and now, we won't survive in space either.

    "The planet" doesn't need taking care of. It needs the be left alone.

    I disagree because it is only the humans on this planet that are polluting it and destroying everything that Earth has to offer humanity. Not finding ways to stop the unnecessary extinctions of entire species or to stop the spread of diseases that could wipe out everything is a very bad way to do things. Humans can reverse their polluting ways if they choose to do so.

    Yes, so taking the humans out of the equation solves everything.

    Putting education as a priority would be much more prudent to have humans understand what's happening and what they can do to help.

    Leaving it alone is not an option so even though it's true the planet doesn't need to be taken care of the interaction between humans and the planet need to be maintained.

    GOAL is to achieve something . We have thousands of dreams . We run from one dream to another . We want to be this , we want to be that . What is that dream-goal , by achieving which ; there can not be any more dream . We have only our lifetime to achieve that . What happens after life , is quite a mystery . What happened before life is also a mystery . So, we only have our present lifetime to decide about our GOAL of life and make a meaningful attempt to achieve that GOAL .
