Science and practical experience clearly show that we cannot care for every individual wild tiger. Animal lovers and conversationalists should focus on saving the species as a whole rather than worry about saving every individual. Conversation interventions must therefore be guided by scientific evidence and social practicality, rather than emotion.

Which of the following, if true, would most weaken the conclusion ?

A. There are so few tigers left that it would not be difficult or impractical to care for every single one of them
B. When a species is down to just a handful of members, then saving the whole species would entail for caring for each individual as well.
C. It is difficult to get ordinary people interested in conserving endangered species without appealing to their emotions.
D. The reason that animal lovers and conversationalists try to help endangered animals is that they feel emotionally attached to these animals.
E. Many animals parks are dependent on scientific data to focus on park's animals.

Please give kudos if you liked the question.

D. Correct. The conservationists & animal lovers feels emotionally attached--> they help endangered species.
If they would have acted only by scientific evidence and social practicality , they might not have felt attached and thus would have tried to help the endengered species.

Imo B.. OA pls.

As question compares holistic versus individual approach.. To weaken statement in answer choice must support for individual approach
