They can also alter the ways of life in those ecosystems. But it could also repopulate areas that low in numbers, a very good thing. For starter, scientists are considering bringing back multiple different species and are working very hard on ways to do that. They have come up with multiple ways to do, one of them is extracting DNA from that animal, like a fossil or frozen mammoth. They then use that DNA and insert it into a surrogate mom, of a close species, and have a surrogate father, of the same close species as the mother, involved in the process.
Numerous people have attempted to justify the use of such methods by putting down or rather, dismissing the animal as a creature lacking the mental capacities to be considered equals to that of a human being. In their book "Animal Experimentation : The Moral Issue" authors Robert M. Baird and Stuart E. Rosenbaum say, "holders of rights must have the capacity to comprehend rules of duty, governing all including themselves" (104). He then goes on to explain that "animals do not have such moral capacities" (Baird 105). And as a result of this "we can't violate their rights because they have none" (Baird 105). Dismissing the animal as nothing more then an object may not seem like the most reasonable defense against the use of animals for testing
Zoos may be very necessary for endangered species. But, there are different ways how to save and continue endangered species, and every zoo have had choice how they do it. Some zoos are breeding endangered species trying to continue the species, but that is not right, because it leads to very complicated health issues. For example white tiger who are very rare animal, breeding requirements are that all white tigers parents must be white tigers too, to get only white tiger, and so are zoos breeding white tigers fathers with their daughters and mothers with their sons. But some zoos again are preserving and studying endangered species in captivity to save endangered species in the wild.
Seeing how Darwin’s finches different from each other even though they are the same species, it makes sense to believe that evolution is possible. Even humans are evolving. Our jaws are becoming shorter and there 's less space for wisdom teeth to grow. Looking back into history, there is also the ideas about Native Americans who lived in Arizona or the people of the Arctic. Their ideas must have been completely different to be able to survive in extreme
It also showed that animal testing does not only help humans but animals too. I am going to include this information in my paper to show the people who are fighting against animal testing are fighting improvements with humans and animals. Cressey, Daniel.

“The Scopes Trial is one of the best known in American history events because it symbolizes the conflict between science and theology, faith and reason, individual liberty and majority rule,” (Mintz and McNeil par 1). The decade of the 1920’s was an era of rebellion, prosperity, and social changes. One major event that shocked the country through its discordance between urban enlightenment and rural protestantism was called “The Scopes Trial”, which involved the teachings of evolution. Before the trial took place, an act known as “The Butler Act” established that public schools prohibited the teachings of evolution to students. This act was passed in early 1925 by the Tennessee General Assembly for the reason being that students shouldn’t
The Truth of Exotic Animals Across America there are people who dream and think about owning an exotic pet, they want to have a unique animal, but these animals also have unique needs. People should have the freedom to purchase an exotic animal if they choose to but before they are allowed to do that they should have to take a class and get a permit to own that animal, and they would have to meet the specific requirements so that the animal has a healthy life and the owner and other people will be safe. Exotic animals are not just your ordinary pet according to Mia Lewis author of “Do you really want a baby tiger”. Everyone should have the right to own an exotic animal as long as it is not endangered and they meet the requirements but befor you go out and purchase that animal just remember “owning an exotic pet is
Karron had stated, “ Scientists and doctors recognize that while animals are biologically like human beings, they are not identical. There is empirical evidence showing that animal “models” are not accurate and cannot be relied upon for safety testing and disease research, therefore medical experimentation on humans is more effective in clinical trials toward the discovery of cures for human diseases the medical experimentation on animals. When talking about testing on animals and not humans, the reality stands in the way of realizing that regulatory authorities are demanding to test on at least two different animal species before a drug is entered human trials.Even with today's testing standards, the scientists who found the morning sickness drug, would not likely have detected its crippling effects when they tested on rats and mice because humans are not two-pound
This has caused some places including Michigan, Wisconsin, and Canada to outlaw the harvesting of frogs (Dissection in the Classroom). Dissection is teaching students that animal life in unimportant. “Educators that insist on using animal specimens rather than non-animal alternatives as teaching tools miss a valuable opportunity to teach their students about humane education and are not implementing the 3R’s principle—reduction, refinement, and replacement—regarding the use of animals” (Dissection in the
His theories would predate all ideas that God created man. The theory of evolution would explain how all living beings came to be and could explain life all the way back to just a split second after the Big Bang. Both Saint Augustine and Martin Luther were believers in the scientific community, but they would have seen these findings in totally different lights. Saint Augustine would have agreed that the findings by Charles Darwin were true and that the stories of creation were more allegorical than literal. Martin Luther would have been more headstrong and believed that Darwinism was more fake science that could not truly be proven.
The article, “Of Primates and Personhood: Will According Rights and “Dignity” to Nonhuman Organisms Halt Research?” by Ed Yong is trying to convince the reader to see a different side to primates. The Great Ape Project set legal rights for chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos, and orangutan. United Kingdom and New Zealand protect great apes from experimentation. For the Great Ape Project they are basically setting laws and higher standards for primates to me experimented on or held captive. Not everyone agrees with the GAP’s but some people do have special obligations for the great apes.
