Deut. 22:6-7 stands for the principle of protecting wild life. It says that the eggs or young can be taken from a nest, but not the mother bird. The Bible promises that if the wildlife conservation is practiced—it will bring long life to the people who practice it. Also see Lev. 25:7 where every seven years a field must rest from being tilled and the crops that grow on the land that year may not be harvested, but they are to furnish food for the poor, the aliens, and for not only domestic beasts but wild animals shall be fed by those crops.
