Don't worry about your own death. It's other specie's deaths we're worried about.

Remember, some people are out there to save animals, even parts of government shut down the business for Animal Trade and such.

Many hunters keep the population of animals regulated.

I'm pretty sure humans are too hardy to go down this easily

I recently spent an entire day at the Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois. The majority of the time I was in their "Evolving Planet" exhibit. The people with me abandoned me after a short while, because I fully intended on reading into every bit of information I could see on display there, and it took quite some time.

Basically, the exhibit starts out with proposed scientific theories on how life first began on earth. It moves on to show how cells reproduce in different ways, and ultimately how natural selection works. As you continue to walk through the winding halls, you witness many different periods of the Earth's animal's evolution. The first single celled organisms began to engulf other single cells, and then multi-celled organisms came to exist, and invertebrates, and other adaptations, and so on and so forth. The detail of the knowledge we have on how everything that exists today came to be from those first single cells is not perfectly complete by any means, but I was still amazed at the wealth and complexity of what we do know.

Occasionally in the exhibit, you'll walk into an area where the walls turn bright red and a huge board of "Mass Extinction #(insert number here)" is seen. On the board it explains what died, how, and when. I saw a general trend of 50% or more of the Earth's species at a time die out in one short period, and was particularly fascinated. The fact that everything that took so long to grow into complexity can perish forever in such a short time is terribly eyeopening. And of course we have the issue that we're currently experiencing another mass extinction today.

Pity we have to be there to actually witness this extinction, instead of just reading about it on some board in some museum like it's a distant story we'll never have to actually be bothered with. But it's not as if human kind deserves pity, for we're the reason that it's happening. Never before has a mass extinction occurred thanks to the doings of a single species. That's not exactly a record I would of wanted my species to have broken, but broken it we have. I do hope we can right ourselves and the rest of the planet's life before we all fall down the slippery slope of mass death again, because it's highly possible that we won't be there to create another museum to detail the "Mass Extinction Caused By Humans".
