Extinction is where a living creature no longer exists on planet earth, because of the absence of the opposite sex for which it can’t breed, or because hunter kill the species so fast that they don't have time to breed and repopulate their herd. Poaching has a long history and an ever growing presence in today society. Some people try to stop this threat against nature by taking action themselves. There are a lot of websites and foundations that one can donate to, in order to help save a certain species. Since poaching is still in occurrence in today's society there is a high chance
Worth billions of dollars every year, promptly following drugs, firearms, and human trafficking, animal poaching is the illegal act of slaughtering or capturing animals. Due to the approximated tens of millions of animals being poached for their fur, shells, horns, etcetera, there is a rapid decline in population, causing a myriad of species to confront endangerment and possible extinction. Furthermore, some of the most at risk animals include, but are not limited to, sea turtles, elephants, tigers, rhinoceroses, lemurs, and gorillas. This illicit trade is mainly generated by human avarice, the belief that some animal parts possess medicinal properties, and the lack of other livelihood opportunities. To place an approximated price on these
Humans are the cause for almost all of the animals who have gone extinct, but yet other people don’t want to help save them? From 1970 to 2012 our animal population has dropped by 58%. That my friends is why we need wildlife conservations. Think of all the animals being poached, such as tigers, rhinos, and whales and then tell me you don’t feel bad, because you don’t want to save them. People who argue against conservations, saying they don’t work are full of crap.
They killed thousands of exotic wild on representing hundreds of different species in foreign countries primarily in Africa. Trophy Hunters don't really care about the conservation. They want to be the ones to tell others what kind of ways they went through to kill an animal. “ Heads, horns, tusks, and other body parts of most these animals are legally and sometimes illegally imported as trophies to the US.” Since these animals are being killed for the pleasure of the eye there's no point in killing them. Killing animals also means killing the food chain that they were involved in.
To begin with, trophy hunting should not be legal because the animals should be protected. According to the article Africa’s Uneasy Neighbors, “Cecil was in a protected area in a national park in Zimbabwe and was lured.” The text goes to state that Cecil hunt wasn’t a fair hunt. In the text it states, “Waiting was a dentist from Minnesota who paid more than $50,000 for the chance to kill an African lion.” This evidence proves that trophy hunting is very bad and should be illegal. Secondly, trophy hunting should not be legal because it is harmful to endangered species. According to Africa’s Uneasy Neighbors, “Africa has lost up to 60 percent wild animals in the past 40 years.” For another example, “Some guides illegally take hunters to into protected areas or lure the animals out as in a case of Cecil.” This evidence proves that trophy hunting
They can destroy the area that a particular species lived, such as a rhino living in a grassland. “According to a recent study published by Scandinavian and South African researchers in the Journal of Ecology, rhinos maintain the diverse African grasslands on which countless other species depend.” (Nuwer, pp. 2) Once the rhinos are gone from the area, the ecosystem will become unbalanced because of the lack of grass and plants that are being eaten and can become overwhelming. A certain type of food that zebras eat starts dying off because it is getting suffocated by the plants that the rhinos usually eat. If there is no food
Abstract Human life is precious, then how about animals? Ending human life is considered as unethical and this is against the law. However, this does not apply to animals. Even though most families treat their animals as part of their family members, animal euthanasia is still a controversial issue nowadays. Millions of dogs are euthanized in each year and several methods are used by the veterinarian to put the animal to death.
Humans are currently driving elephants to extinction, by destroying their habitat, leaving them vulnerable to desiase, shooting them when they approach farms, and poaching or illegally killing about 35,000 elephants a year for their ivory tusks. Scientists are studying elephant communication in order to fully understand elephants, which is key in the process of saving them from
Currently, elephants are endangered because humans are selfish and want to take their ivory tusks. Humans have also depleted the tiger population down to less than 2,500 tigers in the whole world. When a certain species is removed from their ecosystem, it can have effects on their prey and their predators. Their prey’s population would increase, and their predator’s population would decrease due to their being nothing for it to eat.
Hunting and Poaching Report by Nicholas Hong Si Wei of class 2E6 Research mentors: Mrs Candy Tong, Ms Sarala, Mr Ang Abstract: Hunting and poaching is the act of killing, capturing of wild animals. However, hunting is legal in some parts of the world whereas poaching is done illegally unfortunately, because of excessive hunting and poaching, this has become a global problem whereby many animals and decreasing dramatically in population or even extinction. Some of the cases include Amur Leopard, Black Rhino, Sumatran Tiger, and Sumatran Elephant which are critically endangered. Some extreme cases where by a particular species of animal is completely extinct include Atlas bear, Japanese sea lion, Carolina parakeet and dusky seaside sparrow.
