Is it okay to wipe out an entire species because they are “invasive”?
How do we label a particular species as invasive?

Well any species that evolves too fit to survival that it starts to dominate and cause havoc by over consumption of natural resources is termed a invasive. We humans:man_farmer: ourselves are one of the most invasive species.

Well was it OK if that invasive butterfly had wiped out one of the plant species?

A question like this is more of a philosophical question about morals. Because it doesn’t has any logical path that we can follow to weigh the existence of one species over the other in my opinion.
