But still, I think that’s how it works...) Still speaking of what Marlo said,--I know, maybe you don’t entirely agree with what she presented, but you two were on the same side--she asked us “What if humans went extinct?” I personally think that then all the animals and the whole world, frankly, would be better off. After all, we are the main cause for the extinction of many species. Over time the Earth would fix all of the havoc and damage caused by people, and it would be an almost perfect haven, with a balanced ecosystem. Animal activists may think that it would beneficial to the animals. However, you also have to think about the animal itself.
FACTUALS ABOUT ENDANGERED SPECIES 1. An endangered species is one whose numbers are so tiny that it is at chance of extinction. 2. Conservationists do tough and sporadically hazardous work to uphold usual habitats, which are critical to protecting wildlife. Manage thank-you cards to those who protect endangered species.
Most animals are locked up in small cages all day being kept like a house pet (Keeping Wild Caught Animals - Unsafe, Illegal, Inhumane). Other animals are treated very poorly, and used in shows for entertainment like the circus (Should Wild Animals Be Kept As Pets?). Some animals are also shipped to people, and most don’t make it to the destination alive (Why Wild Animals Should Not Be Pets). When the animals don’t do what they are supposed to do in shows, it leads to neglect from the owners. Some people think that when they get the animal they are helping it, but it decreases the chance of the animal having a normal life in the wild.
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.
Not only serious, but cruel and unnecessary. Every day, the number of animal casualties continue to escalate while the remaining population dwindles down to extinction. It's easy to dismiss this since we don't directly rely on some of these organisms. However, all aspects of the environment are connected in one way or another. An extinction of one species could threaten many other populations.
In the article 5 Reasons to Bring Back Extinct Animals and 5 Reasons Not to, the author Breanna Draxler explains, “De-extinct species would be alien and potienally invasive; their habits and food sources have changed. So their in these changed ecosystems could be too” (2013). This means that if extinct species comes back, it would have new food sources and habits to adapt to. In the article De-Extinction Probably Not Worth It by Sarah Zielinski it states, “Then they would have to successfully re-introduce the species to the planet, taking care to find a place where the new-again species wouldn’t harm other animals and where the animal would be safe from whatever drove them extinct in the first place” (2017). This explains that if a species were to come back to the world scientists would have to re-introduce them to their habitats, their food sources, and other animals around them.
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.
In honors biology, we watched a film called Racing Extinction. In this film, we learned that humans are the main reason that species of plants and animals all over the Earth are becoming extinct at a rapidly fast speed. The men in the film showed statistics and images that were mind blowing, that I had absolutely no idea about. Humans are more destructive than we think, and we need to do something about it before it is too late. When most people think of the word “extinct”, they relate it to animals, instead of plants.
Human and Other Species The nature is miraculous and magnificent, it creates human and other animals on this planet. In the history, humans become civilized creature and which make human beings different from other species. People are likely to be the ruler of our planet, and as the modernization, more human activities are harmful to the environment. As a result, some species are become in dangers. In this article, the focusing point is on endangered species.
Wolves should be kept on the endangered species list because as seen through evidence they help the environment in many ways that people don’t always see. Imagine a world where wolves don’t keep the deer numbers in check or kill off diseased/injured animals, the whole ecosystems of some areas would be completely ruined. Other animal species would die out if wolves are their main predator because they would begin to over populate which would leave them to over using their food supplies and then starving to death. Animals would have to be forced onto the endangered species list costing us tons of money only for it not to really help. It would be sort of like a chain reaction if wolves were to be taken of the list and then go extinct, and we never know if that chain reaction would affect us very badly or if it not affect us at all until it is to
