Japan’s Ministry of the Environment officially declared Lutra Lutra Whiteleyi or better known as the ‘Japanese River Otter’ extinct in the wild. Many searches have been conducted over the past years but the last sighting was still in 1979. The Japanese River Otter was a subspecies of the European Otter. It mostly ate shrimp and fish and could grow to be 1 meter long. It is thought the main reason for it’s extinction is due to overhunting, because it’s fur was considered very
There have been around 150 killer whales taken to live in marine parks since the 1960’s. Today, 127 of them are dead. We need to resolve this issue: should killer whales be left to roam free in their natural habitat,or should they be held captive in marine parks? First, let’s take this into consideration. When we put orcas into captivity, we are taking a lot more away from them than we think.
He compares the mass extinction of various animals 65 million years ago (Glavin, 2013, p. 167) to the depletion of big fish in the sea. This presents a false analogy fallacy (Henderson, 2013, p. 52), as the extinction of dinosaurs and near disappearance of cod have very little in common, and appears to exaggerate the situation regarding the exhausting populations of fish. Furthermore, the article later goes on to discuss sustainability in fisheries (Glavin, 2013, p. 168-169), veering off the topic of defending seal hunting. The author makes references to how the Marine Stewardship Council and their "eco-label" are forcing fisheries to take up more sustainable practices (Glavin, 2013, p. 168-169). This information appears to be encouraging the reader not to boycott seafood because the seafood is becoming more and more sustainable.
Since late 2004, Harpseals.org has been promoting the boycott of Canadian seafood in order to pressure the Canadian fishing industry to stop supporting the massacre of seals. In 2013, Harpseals.org added a boycott of Namibian seafood to end the Cape fur seal slaughter. So the reason that they are Boycotting Canadian Seafood is because most of the Canadian sealers are fishermen. Sealing is an off-season activity for them, just a way to earn a few dollars before the start of the fishing season. Their income from selling pelts is only about 5% of their income.
Of those 23 were taken from the wild and 33 were born in captivity. they can be found in at least 12 marine parks spanning 8 different countries. Although most countries have now banned the capture of wild Orcas. The countries of China and Russia have yet to do so and as recent as last year Orcas have been taken from the wild into captivity. Imagine you are in the cold ocean, you are free and can swim as far as your body can take you and as deep as you can hold your breath.
Walter Palmer should be fined for killing Cecil because he has hidden proof of him killing Cecil for a month, he could have impact on other lions, and intentionally he shouldn’t have killed a lion for no reason. In Cecil the lion written by Matthew Drake Walter Palmer has putted his career in danger, due to killing a lion for no obvious reason. Walter is now having the law all over him for something that he should have not done. He should have to face in consequences of prison due to his actions. He has failed to obey the Lacey Act.
Some cities they are not allowed and some are. They aren’t allowed some countries because they have attacked people and sometimes are still used in dog fighting. But “The three decades after officials in more than 700 cities throughout the country began passing bans and other restrictions.’’ Pit bull stories are not as common as before society is starting to bring them back. In the countries that had them banned were debating if they should allow them or not to allow them. “Over 937 cities in the US have BSL legislation in place.” Most of the reason pit bulls bite is because they are terrified and are treated very poorly.
For example, people’s desire to taste shark fin soup has tormented many sharks by having them living without fins and finally die in pain. Also, the vast release of carbon dioxide from people’s factories, uses of the air conditioner and cars has resulted in global warming, which afflicts polar bears to near extinction. Similarly, deforestation excessively annihilates habitats of many forest animals, resulting in an immense decrease in their population. All of these do not represent harmony in nature at all. If humans continue to ruin the shelters of animals, no wonder humans will die eventually because of the unbalanced population of each species and the destruction of the world.
In an interview the famous activist Gary Yourofsky is asked the question “Lions kill zebras, and if they don`t they would starve to death. Isn`t that the circle of life? His answer was that sometimes lions kill their young and if a human being kill their baby cause they don`t want him we arrest them and charge him with murder. Could you go to court room and say “Hey, but your Honour, lions kill their babies, can`t I? We apperaly herbivores we have no carniviore or omnivores instincts.
The cause for the drop in elephants is poachers killing them for their tusks. The effect is less elephants in the world. If there are less elephants what will people see on safari trips. Poachers are very bad because they kill elephants. Poachers need to just get a real job.
