No way! Big game hunting should NOT be allowed. It can cause extinction, and can leave some animals with no habitats due to humans taking over their land. Big game hunting causes many different negative things to happen, but on of those negative things is that it can cause extinction. Currently, elephants are endangered because humans are selfish and want to take their ivory tusks.
An Elephant Never Forgets Have any species gone extinct in your lifetime? Imagine an animal you see every day, gone, forgotten. That is a real possibility for elephants over the next 15 years. It may not seem like a pressing issue, but elephants are dying at an alarming rate. According to Melissa Sciacca, Executive Director of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT), one elephant is killed approximately every 25 minutes.
Darting- , veterinary- and chopper fees are some of the many costs attached to horn removal. The cost of dehorning is in excess of R8000 per animal although the cost is reduced if more than one animal is dehorned at a time, as the chopper charges per hour. These costs cannot be regenerated as the rhino horn cannot be legally sold, resulting in no income from the rhino to pay for the dehorning process. Due to the horn growing back relatively quickly, the animal will have to be dehorned roughly every 12-18 months. It would cost about US$5-8 million to dehorn the entire rhino population in the Kruger National Park just once.
If the Amur Leopards go extinct another species of animal will go extinct due to human activity like poaching, destruction of habitat, and pollution. Without the Amur Leopard some animals could be overpopulated causing an unbalanced ecosystem which then affects the people because they will have to step in to stop the growth. by believing in a cause like this people would be able to help the Amur Leopard with public awareness. Lately the Amur Leopard has been gaining popularity with organizations that will help it regain population. Have you ever heard of Albert Schweitzer?
Humans are currently driving elephants to extinction, by destroying their habitat, leaving them vulnerable to desiase, shooting them when they approach farms, and poaching or illegally killing about 35,000 elephants a year for their ivory tusks. Scientists are studying elephant communication in order to fully understand elephants, which is key in the process of saving them from
Worth billions of dollars every year, promptly following drugs, firearms, and human trafficking, animal poaching is the illegal act of slaughtering or capturing animals. Due to the approximated tens of millions of animals being poached for their fur, shells, horns, etcetera, there is a rapid decline in population, causing a myriad of species to confront endangerment and possible extinction. Furthermore, some of the most at risk animals include, but are not limited to, sea turtles, elephants, tigers, rhinoceroses, lemurs, and gorillas. This illicit trade is mainly generated by human avarice, the belief that some animal parts possess medicinal properties, and the lack of other livelihood opportunities. To place an approximated price on these
The quote states “In the last 10-16 years, 1.5 people on average gets killed yearly by captive reptile, 1 by captive cat, 0.81 by captive elephant, 0.125 by captive bear and 0 by captive nonhuman primate,” reports Zuzana Kuhol, a REXANO o-founder “As a comparison, 45,000 people died each year in traffic accidents, 47 from lightning and 1,600 by falling down stairs” (REXANO). However, even though it is rare, it still happens and you can’t predict when it will attack. The quote claims “Exotic animals are wild animals with wild animal instincts, even when born in captivity. A wild animal is never 100 percent predictable. An animal that has behaved one way for many years cannot suddenly change.
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.
“ That means tigers and lions have around 18,000 times less space in the zoo then in the wild”.Zoos are becoming more dangerous for animals. 3,000 to 5,000 stressed animals are killed each year in zoos. Do you believe that over 400 animals are killed a month, 13 a day,1 every 2 hour all killed in zoos. That why we should ban zoos. The animals in the

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.
“ You’ll need to feed it foods such as fruits, flower nectars, insects and even smaller lizards (gross! ).” First, finger monkeys need these types of food to maintain a healthy diet but these will cost 35-75 dollars each month and this involves other things as well. Some people may be sensitive and might not feed insects and small lizards to the finger monkey which would drop its health level. “Your local veterinarians will want nothing to do with monkeys when you need their help, you will have to travel miles to find one and you will not find them particularly helpful.” Secondly, this would add additional costs to find a vet who would want to care for your monkey because if the local vets don’t know or want to help your monkey, you would have to pay hundreds just to find a vet when it’s sick. Most people wouldn’t really want to pay this so they might just leave that monkey to die just because it’s expensive to take care of.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature says elephants could be extinct within 50 years. (Tweed, 2) Before the rise of massacres in Africa, 25 million elephants used to exist, (Steyn, 2) but that number has lessened to approximately 470-690 thousand. The number continues to steadily drop, considering an average of 7% of the population has been poached each year between 2010 and 2013, (Boynton, 2) and 96 elephants are killed every day by poachers throughout Africa. (Tweed, 1) The plummet in numbers is hard to monitor, bearing in mind that elephants migrate across international borders on a daily basis. This, unfortunately, creates a great complication for conservation organizations trying to keep populations at a safe level.
Organizations such as the Karisoke Research Center have been working persistently to remove these traps from the Virunga National Park and reported to find and destroy one-thousand of these traps a year. With mountain gorillas being constantly on the move every day, it is extremely hard for the conservator organizations to fully protect these gorillas from the dangers of these traps. In the 1960s Hunting of mountain gorillas was a recurring act especially in the Democratic Republic of Congo but the hunting of mountain gorillas has slowly become reduced, since poachers have recently had the tendency to capture infants to sell illegally. Virunga National Park in Congo has had a history of many mountain gorilla deaths due to poachers. In the years between 1990 and 1994, hundreds of thousands of Rwandan refugees migrated and took camp near the edge of the Virunga National Park, in those four years, three silverback gorillas were killed causing mayhem and more deaths in multiple mountain gorilla social groups.
In addition, many feel circuses should not be allowed to capture wild animals for entertainment purposes because the animal populations are decreasing. According to a study shown, "The Asian elephant, [...], is an endangered species with less than 40,000 remaining worldwide" ("Why World Elephant"). Knowing that there are not a lot of elephants left in the world, circuses continue to capture them and wrongfully care for them. The elephants will not have any chance of coming back from being endangered, especially since the circuses capture them. It is also shown in the study that, "[...] populations have decreased by seventy percent because of human-elephant conflict" ("Why World Elephant").
