Animal Rights: Trophy Hunting Our african animals are our most beautiful animals on this planet and people near and far travel to come see these exotic creatures but they are in danger now because of poaching and trophy hunt for illegal trade. “Ancient trophy hunting were spectacular entertainment to show royal power and dominance while the kings people watched from the sidelines”(weisberger), but today it hasn't really changed much from 600 B.C. Americans are still killing innocent animals for their own entertainment. For instance, “The United States alone has imported almost 5,000 elephant trophies since the year 2000”(Cruise). Poaching and trophy hunting for wildlife continues to be a modern tragedy; however , the U.S. government and other
Extinction is the greatest threat to animals that are victims of wildlife poaching. - Western Black Rhinoceros (extinct) - Sumatran Tiger (critically endangered) When North American Gray Wolf was hunted, elk populations increased → no natural predator → aspen trees were
For instance, it can help protect forests and other species living in them. Panda bears are important to be kept because their habitat helps for local communities that are used for food, income and fuel. They are known as to create economic benefits for people through ecotourism (“Why should we save the giant panda?”). Overall, these panda provide a lot for the public and they should be kept to help for economic benefits they can provide a lot to the Chinese so they shouldn’t be given up on. Why not be saved or
Take tigers for example; they’re an endangered species due to their vulnerability to illegal poaching and habitat loss from extensive logging, but zoos have provided a safe enclosure for them to live. Leave it to humans to ruin an animal 's habitat, shove them in a zoo and claim they’re helping. Another go to defense of zoos are their educational value. If I had a penny for all the things I learned at the zoo I’d say I’d be approximately 3 cents richer. Even if zoos were as educational as they say, why couldn’t you just watch documentaries.
Hunting, poaching, and international or intercontinental trade are among the greatest threats to the giant pangolin. The species has long been hunted for meat which is both consumed locally and traded. The keratinized scales of the pangolin are also in high demand for traditional medicine use (Pietersen, Waterman, Hywood, Rankin, & Soewu, 2024). Intercontinental trade may be becoming more of a threat to the giant pangolin. Conservation efforts for pangolins has mostly focused on Asian species, and the African species have been a bit neglected.
In Africa, a village of the name Sankuyo earned $600,000 from the 120 animals that were allowed to be victims of trophy hunting(Onishi). Without trophy hunting, there will not be as much money owned by these African villages and the villages will slowly decline to poverty. To add to this argument, lions have been seen entering the villages, where the ban has been placed, to find food because they would normally eat the elephant carcusses left by trophy hunters. The people of these villages are claiming to be poisoning those animals who trespass in order to save their own crops. Are humans really that much more important than these innocent animals?
Banning dog meat can talk to the world that China is a friendly and kind country and Chinese culture is fit with the mores of contemporary society. Actually, the law will cost some losses of the dog meat restaurants and dog meat lovers, however, the time waiting for us to change is limited and making a law is necessary which can help people make a full use of the dogs, government protect the citizens better and built a more friendly image to the world. Therefore, the government should make the law to stop eating dog meat gradually and
Pandas are cute, cuddly and one of the most beloved animals in the world. Sadly, their numbers have declined and there are only 1600 pandas left living in the wild. Do you ever ask why? That’s the mission of many conservationists, but should this be at any expense? That is the dilemma that is facing the animal world right now; should we save pandas or should we allow them to become extinct?
It’s like having a high-level informant inside the world of wildlife crime.” (Kolbert, page 30). This doesn’t only help elephants it can help rhinos, tigers, whales, etc. His strategy can help create more technology to prevent poaching. Also, it can help rangers build more conservations for the animals since the areas are on the dung map. These organizations do get government help from Africa and also help from various animal saving organizations.
The poem suggests that this is a result of the hatred of humans and the easiest way to “feed they lion” and make “they lion grow”(Levine 5). It gives off the a tone to the reader that there is war or that there once was war. Levine’s word usage is what gives the poem its unfortunate tone right from the start. Rather than choosing softer language, he starts his poem with words a phrases like “acids of rage” (Levine 3) and
