Hello! In the winter of this year, Bloomberg published an article. that because of the waxing pubic area pubic lice could face extinction as a species. Ukrainian media were quick to convey to the audience this so funny and slightly indecent circumstance.We laughed then, too, but then I analyzed what we were laughing over the "pubic" and "louse", but is not noticed "spices". The latter fact makes us sad and wonder what we can do.We are not environmentalists but creative association of artists and designers in the city of Donetsk in Ukraine, so our first impulse was to arrange a performance in defense of pubic lice, but still decided to first ask the opinion of specialists.Question: have we to worry about the extinction of parasites in general and in particular lice? After all, there dilemma: on the one hand the parasite, but on the other hand part of the natural ecosystem and species diversity. What is your opinion as a professionals?
