Endangered Species Imagine the world where species are dying because they couldn’t find food because there food is extinct. The world would turn into chaos just because of one species. So if the government could save that one endangered species then we could stop the world from going into chaos.
Endangered species have a huge impact on the world and if they go extinct it can mess up everything. “Endangered species does not just refer to wildlife but rather any living organism whether in the air, in the sea, within the ground or roaming about the earth” (ProQuest Staff). There has been a lot of animals and plants on the endangered species list but only some animals make the list. To make the list the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has to say

“Various factors contribute to a species becoming endangered including poaching, global warming, habitat loss, disease, pollution, and hunting and fishing” (Cathaleen). All of these are reasons why a species becomes endangered or extinct. To help endangered species from becoming extinct the United States signed a bill that is called the Endangered Species Act. This makes it so that the government has to take action and they have to help save the species. They have to put the species in a safe home and somehow make it so the species becomes not a threatened and endangered species of fish, wildlife or plants. Back in the 1990’s the South Asian Gypes “Vultures started dying out because of a drug that is given to livestock. Once the livestock died the vultures ate the carcasses and the vultures started dying of kidney failure” (Dasgupta, Mongabay). Vultures are scavengers and they keep our ecosystem clean and healthy. When they started dying out it was like a domino effect and it effected many other species and it killed lots too. “It also infected humans and it caused the rat and feral dog population rose up and took the spot of the vulture. Because of that numerous transmissible diseases like rabies, anthrax and plague, resulting in health costs around 34 billion dollars”(Dasgupta, …show more content…
Lots of people are with this and lots of people are against this. If they did do this the animal wouldn’t really be the same and they couldn’t bring back animals from a million years ago. “So it’s impossible to bring back the T Rex” (ProQuest Staff).
But if they brought back certain animals or species where would they put them. Most of the world is inhabited by humans and the species home is probably now a city so the species couldn’t adapt to where it lived. If they brought back a top of the food chain animal and started to eat deer. The deer would start to die out because there would be more predators for the deer and that would cause another endangered species and then another because the predators would die out because they would have no food. So that would ruin the ecosystem and make a lot of species to become endangered and extinct. So imagine the world where species are dying because they couldn’t find food because there food is extinct. The world would turn into chaos just because of one species. So if the government could save that one endangered species then it could stop the world from going into chaos. So the humans need to wake up and save these species so our world doesn’t become and crazy and hectic place. The world does not need to be a place full of chaos. So help these endangered
