All animals on the planet like dogs, birds, cats, sheep, pigs are human being’s friends. All living creatures on this earth have the right to continue living peacefully, so we have to conserve our natural resources especially the animals. Even if we are having fun hunting animals, the reality is we are creating a negative impact on the environment as a whole. If you consider animals as precious and valuable creatures, will you engage in animal hunting?
The hunting of all different species of animals for various purposes, such as cooking them as specialty food in expensive restaurants or to trade them to wealthy people, is harmful to our environment. Other animals and plants in areas with many endangered animals are also affected because the food chain in that particular environment is already destroyed. For example, if there are more prey animals which slowly disappear, because of hunting, than the predators then predators will starve as time goes by. Moreover, preys will be outnumbered by predators which might lead for some predators to eat their co-predator.
Preventing them from becoming extinct is the role of humans and should be acted immediately. Tendency is, if a species becomes extinct, other species of animals will also be affected. As more animals become extinct, the earth’s situation become worse. Some countries legalize animal hunting for a particular species, excluding those that have become extinct, for researching purposes. One way to save these is through breeding and cross-breeding. The earth needs these animals to balance our ecosystem. There are many reasons for conserving them, so we have to start ways or means to promote animal conservation campaign.
Hunting, especially extinct kinds, should be prohibited in various parts of the world. Some people say that those who hunt with bad intentions will be punished by the Mother Earth someday. But, humans of today only think of themselves not minding the environment around them. Sadly, some human beings hunt, eat and even illegally trade extinct animals for their own good. Hunting these is a very terrible act a human can do. People in authority should punish those illegal hunters so that others will not follow their bad actions. It is also important to construct the habitat of animals, especially extinct ones, in a safe place. Some people can be a volunteer to work for environmental agencies and associations which protect animals. Educating people about the importance of protecting animals is also needed and responsibility of people in the government administration.
Animals are human’s friends and so let’s stay it that way. The hunters hunt animals such as tigers, reindeer, giant pandas, bears, birds and elephants for the reason to earn more money or just for fun and pleasure. They take the teeth of tigers, antlers of reindeer, paw of bears, ivory of elephants and animal’s fur. Because of these illegal hunters, the number of animals slowly declines. Humans need animals as animals need us, so let us promote animal conservation.
