Not to mention it can be a cruel form of hunting and a cruel death. To begin with, trophy hunting should not be legal because these animals should be protected. In fact, the New York Times article states that the Obama Administration has placed lions in Africa under the protection of the Endangered Species Act. Also, the Junior Scholastic article stated that more than one million people signed a petition asking Zimbabwe to stop issuing hunting permits to kill animals. The petition and being added to the Endangered Species Act goes to show that people want endangered animals protected.
Are humans really that much more important than these innocent animals? Trophy Hunting should be banned. There is overwhelming evidence that supports trophy hunting as a negative influence to our environment. Ban Trophy Hunting now, before it wipes a whole species of our planet. The upcoming generations of children on this planet deserve the right to lay eyes on an elephant or a lion, etc.
Pro-Hunting Argument To hunt or not to hunt, many see it as a negative and its being cruel to animals. Other think if humans keep hunting, animals are going to go extinct. But what many don’t know is how much hunting helps animals and the conservation of animals. People that don’t know what really is going on they always head toward the negative. I’m Going to explain how hunting helps wildlife and how Hunting permits are good because they help maintain animal conservation.

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”. This proves
Invasive species Pythons population is rapidly growing in Florida causing corruption in florida with the animals and their habitats. Invasive species in the United states is a big problem especially in the everglades in Florida and other places in the south. The invasive species are from all over the word and they are all different types of animals. Most invasive animals in the everglades eating other bait fish which are other animals prey and possibly eating other predators. I know at my house we have some overpopulated animals but if they were to be eaten by an opposing animal plants would overpopulate my woods at my house.
Total elimination of the black footed ferret would negatively impact other species in its ecosystem. If awareness of the black footed ferret’s condition increases, the general public can help them by providing donations. The main reasons for endangerment include loss of habit and disease. These factors prevent the black footed ferret from repopulating. By exposing
Quite apart from the cruelty involved in training and confining these animals, the whole idea that we should enjoy the humiliating spectacle of an elephant or lion made to perform circus tricks shows a lack of respect for the animals as individuals.” That was a quote from Peter Singer, a professor of Bioethics at Princeton University who is a also a strong advocate for animal rights. Circuses were first introduced to us in Rome in the 14TH century. In the 19TH century, circuses had made its way around to Australia where the first animal shows were introduced. By the 20TH century, thousands of cases of animal cruelty had been reported from all over the world. Animal Welfare Act did set minimal standards of animal care but every major circus is known to violate these.
Some of the most notable beauty brands that test on animals in China are Estee Lauder, Avon, Clinique; Maybelline, Nars, and Elizabeth Arden. Glamglow, e.t.c. While these list of brands do not test on animals: Lush, Kat Von D, Bath & Body Works; Smashbox, and Wet N Wild. Most manufacturers still support animal testing because they follow regulations, primarily in China, where it is required for cosmetic products produced outside of the country and imported for sale be tested on animals first. Thus, companies will undergo these animal tests to make an extra profit as they will be allowed to sell their products in
The fact is that “one study of tigers in Bangladesh indicated that two-thirds of the animals avoided human beings, but that one-third were taught by their mothers to hunt humans. The threat to human life should not be exaggerated; there are few tigers and nearly all of them want nothing to do with humanity” (“Bengal Tiger”). Statistically it can be assumed that Richard Parker fits into that sixty-six percent that will not attack a human. Even if the statistics are not true, Richard Parker “was caught while still a cub” (Martel 310-311). This allows the readers to deduce that he does not have too much recollection of his mother’s teachings, since he was placed in a zoo environment until the sinking of the Tsimtsum.
They are usually found in remote areas, but in the age of globalization, their remote areas have become few and far between, some examples of relic species are African elephants and giant pandas. Finally the ghost species, which include large fish caught for human consumption, such as tuna and swordfish, and wild animals, such as African lions, which are killed because they threaten livestock. The ghost species, in Meyer’s opinion are, unfortunately, destined to become extinct because they cannot adapt quickly enough to the pressures caused by humans or because humans intentionally eradicate them. These points are very interesting as I had never looked at it that way, I knew about the endangered species list but didn’t go much beyond that as to categorizing it further. Meyer gave me a new insight as to how much people have changed the world, the fact that we categorize animals as endangered is a big enough warning, but we also fail to recognize, or choose to ignore, that they gained this status we give to them because of our actions.
The price of Ivory is now at the highest price it has been, because of how much cultures value it. Cultures value Ivory for its beauty, as well as its ability to be shaped into artistic creations. In today 's world thousands of Elephants are killed only to take the tusks to sell to these cultures that believe it to be so valuable, which are mainly China, Japan, and the United States. If this resource was not considered so valuable the Elephants would not be in danger of extinction. -Elephant Watch by Peter Canby If you walk into most households around the United States, most families and individuals would argue to you that recycling is very important.
It is also shown in the study that, "[...] populations have decreased by seventy percent because of human-elephant conflict" ("Why World Elephant"). In the circus habitat, elephants are not taught how to care for themselves like the ones in the wild are. Because they are taken care of for so long by humans, they can not live on their own in the wild. If the elephants are released after being captivated for entertainment, they will die from not knowing what to do. The AWA does not enforce the humane animal rights, and that results in populations
