Have you ever taken a vaccine or medication? Well, the vaccine or medication that you took has most likely been tested by horseshoe crab blood that was drawn from horseshoe crabs. We should interact with horseshoe crabs even though they are a keystone species because we can use their benefits and also help them too. Some ways that we can preserve their species and simultaneously gain benefits is by flipping them over when they are stranded, chitin, and helping them rebuild their breeding habitats after human causes or natural causes such as tornados, and hurricanes. Have you ever seen a horseshoe crab overturned and you wanted to help it?

Regrettably, in a caged environment, chickens are more likely to suffer from poor bone strength due to lack of exercise, feather loss, increased levels of fear and stress, disease and causes leg disorders (Shields and Greger). These are effects we would never want to happen to our household pets, and we do everything we can to ensure their safety. So morally what happens to chickens is wrong, and Jonathan Anomaly points out three problems in his journal, What 's Wrong With Factory Farming? why caging is an issue, which are: “the spread of pathogenic viruses, the diffusion of antibiotic-resistant bacteria into our shared microbial environment and the immense cruelty suffered by animals in confined conditions.” It is true that agriculture has provided a constant resource of protein to individuals, but the way factories are going about it is unhealthy to the chickens and the people purchasing the product
