An extinction of one species could threaten many other populations. It's too late for some breeds, but with enough action to combat wildlife crime, poaching can be eliminated. It is our job as the human race to reverse the severe damage we have caused in order to sustain the balance of Earth's delicate
A recent estimation on the website janegoodall.ca estimates that,” In the absence of swift action, our closest animal relatives could become extinct within 15 years.” They will be like the movie Ice Age, lots of extinct animals that everyone thinks are cute! Please don't let that
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.
When most people think of the word “extinct”, they relate it to animals, instead of plants. Plants are going extinct too, along with animals, and in reality, plants are much more important to us than animals. Our ecosystem can last without consumers (animals), but we cannot last without producers (plants). One type of plant that is endangered is the Baobab tree. The Baobab tree is most famous for covering much of Madagascar, and is increasingly threatened.
We all know that there are lots of animals we are losing right now, but what’s the exact number of the endangered specie. It’s a very hard questions for scientists to answer, we have not explored the whole nature, and we are still discovering new species all the time. There is one description form World Resource Institute: "Scientists were startled in 1980 by the discovery of a tremendous diversity of insects in tropical forests. In one study of just 19 trees in Panama, 80% of the 1,200 beetle species discovered were previously unknown to science... Surprisingly, scientists have a better understanding of how many stars there are in the galaxy than how many species there are on Earth."
If it continues to go, then they might all become extinct. For example, also in "Air China Bans Transport of Shark Fins", it states the number of sharks killed every year just by humans. Humans are a bigger threat to sharks than they are to humans. Only a few out of over 400 species are actually a threat to human lives. Over 100 million sharks are murdered by humans every year, and it’s a high number for any animal but it’s endangering to sharks because they don’t breed very quickly due to their biological composition (NewsCurrents Read to Know).
It would make us soon realize how bad it would be to see animals that are needed, disappear but that will never happen! To continue, “ It will reproduce endangered or even extinct species.” The author is trying to say that, the more species that become extinct, or placed on the endangered list, would really have an effect on the whole world. There will most likely be at least one endangered animal for each continent, most likely by the end of this year, or next year. So, once we are able to clone the animals, certain
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?
Each day a new species shows up on the extinction list. A new estimate found that species die off as much as 1,000 times more frequently than they used to. One article states “human activities has obliterated nearly 900 species over the past 500 years” (Rachel Nuwer). This problem has gone completely out of control and we need to start finding a way to stop it.
