Only if the lizards say we can

Well first off it doesn't sound like an educated person wrote that paragraph above. Or maybe they are educated but flunked English. I don't claim to be a grammar person but I'm also not claiming to be qualified to write a Mojave Fringe-toed Lizard Study Proposal.

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

If the funky toed lizard survives but there's no mankind around to appreciate it, does their survival have any significance to us?
