Final Answer :
B
Explanation :
According to people who believe that wild species have an inherent right to exist, species have intrinsic value, meaning that they have value simply because they exist and have a right to exist regardless of their usefulness to humans or any other external factors. The other options, extrinsic value, economic value, and utilitarian value, all apply to the value of species in relation to human needs or desires.
