Due to poaching, your favorite animals might be getting killed each day slowly decreasing their population, even though there are laws that are supposed to prevent this. Studies show that thousands of animals are getting killed each year and the hunters are not getting enough discipline for their actions. Though, they should not get the death penalty, they should at least get some type of restraint. Although many people think poachers should not get extreme punishment for their crimes, poaching laws should become harsher because killers are not getting enough retribution, people are wearing animals as clothes, and species are getting endangered. Some may say that poachers should not get death penalty for their crimes: however, many people do not realize that the hunters are not getting enough punishment.
He calls this the right of nature, which is the preservation of self. Hobbes explains that “the right of nature…is the liberty each man hath to use his own power as he will himself for the preservation of his own nature; that is to say, of his own life; and consequently, of doing anything which, in his own judgement and reason, he shall conceive to be the aptest means thereunto” (79). In the state of nature, there is only one natural right, the preservation of self. However, Hobbes encourages people to abandon this natural right to instead enter into civil society. Once in civil society, civil rights can be installed in place of the right of nature, however, these are not believed to be natural rights, as the sovereign instills them and can take them away as he
Also, the overall revenue from big game hunting is a small amount, and only a small percent of that goes to help the community. Although some countries have banned trophy hunting, they continue to allow “canned hunting” in which animals are bred to be hunted.Big game hunting takes a turn for the worse when it becomes canned hunting, or when it can be linked to poaching. People all over the world are voicing their opinion on the sport, legal or illegal. Big game trophy hunting is an unethical game, and this sport should be banned in more countries. An ongoing debate regarding trophy hunting, is can
Instead of anger towards the Inuit people, compassion, understanding, and respect for their culture should be shown. The hypocrisy of anti-sealing associations, the necessity of the seals to the Inuits survival and the disregard to Inuit tradition should cause the EU ban on the production of seal products to be dropped. Therefore, the legalization and acceptance of seal hunting should be initiated. For “Respect depicts acceptance while disrespect is rejection.” - Fawad Afzal
The question is, are these game wardens poachers? I heartily believe that these rangers are poachers, and their actions are not ethical for many reasons. For example, it’s illegal to kill zebras anywhere in Kenya and not just on the game reserves. Kenya is known for its safaris and expansive wildlife reserves, and the country declared to the world in the 1970’s that there would be no more hunting permitted. The rangers’ duties were to protect the wildlife of Kenya, not to eat them.
Another example would be not feeding the animals and not littering. This is because what we eat can be harmful to animals. Removing or destroying features of this park (such as the hoodoos) are also prohibited because it is one of the important and natural sites of this park. A final example of ecological integrity is watching out for bird nests. Many birds in this park are ground nesters such as fulmars.
Does a lion’s life matter to you? Trophy hunting is a cruel way of hunting and this is just one of the reasons why it should not be allowed. But on the other hand, people believe trophy hunting should be allowed for their safety. To being with, trophy hunting should not be allowed because this can be harmful to endangered species. According to the article, African Lions are Disappearing , it states, “ Henschel say that the United States might also list the West African lion as endangered under its Endangered Species Act, a law that protects plants and wildlife.” Also, according to the article, Trophy Hunting Fees, it states “ Trophy Hunting also removes a significant number of animals from these rapidly declining populations”.
The majority of the amount of animals that are killed in the wild are because of hunters. Humans usually kill these animals for accessories such as fur, meat, and other body parts. Creatures in the wild are almost always being hunted, whether it’s by a predator or a hunter. Law enforcers have tried to eliminate the amount of hunters by not allowing road building or hunting in certain areas. This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators.
I chose the case of the exemption for whaling because it clearly shows how globalized opinion has the power to impact villagers that may not even be aware of the discussions that their activities generate worldwide. After reading this paper you will notice that I am against this whaling ban because I have already seen the devastating force that some hypocrite laws have and what they can do to small communities, usually constituted by poor people. Just to illustrate my point, a similar case happened in Brazil, when a few years ago the government banned amateur fishing activities in the Brazilian Pantanal and thousands lost their jobs because they were not considered professional fishermen (Governo sanciona lei que proíbe pesca amadora por 3
Whether indigenous people existed or not, there would be no impact of them in the society. “The live ones we tag, says Bill” (King 64). The indigenous people have been treated as animals. It has destroyed and degraded indigenous people’s reputation and religion. This was the death of the indigenous culture.
When soil became depleted, the natives would change locations. Natives would also burn woodlands to clear the land for farming, and make hunting much easier. Natives in a variety of areas treated the land different, which impacted it differently. Colonists argued that your right to own the land was based on how you altered it. The natives though didn’t appear to be altering the land, which meant they had no legal rights to it.
