Species have evolved from an evolutionary point of view, but by contemporary religious conviction, life is sacred and species exist with a divinely authorized claim to life, which ought to be respected by humans, the overseers of creation. Human-caused extinctions shut down the creative processes. Human dominion over the Earth is constrained by the inherent goodness in and value of creation. Extinction of species is ungodly. Such religious convictions can be an effective force in conservation biology.
