WHOSE LIFE IS IMPORTANT?
All human life is important! I happen to think animals are as well, unless they cause danger.
All life is important.
However, we tend to consider those who effect our own lives as more important to us. This is why, when we hear of any tragedy occurring, we breathe a sigh of relief when we find out that it does not involve anyone we know. (This also includes pets.) The loss of their lives would be a personal loss for us.
Ecologically, the loss of any species can upset the balance of nature. Although the effect might be more indirect, eventually that loss might drastically effect our lives. That would be important to us.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
