Humans should do more to preserve endangered animals
The extinction of animals and plants is a natural process that has caused species to come and go, throughout history. Whereas, this natural extinction is no longer in nature’s control, but is manipulated by humanity, thus increasing the extinction rate of species abnormally. However, this does not mean that the extinction of species cannot be repaired. If every human being makes an effort to save the endangered species, they can be preserved. Humanity’s prosperity, health and advancement, all is dependent on these, species. Elimination of endangered species can lead to the ultimate death of humans. Without nature and its inhabitants, humans risk losing all the benefits they have to contribute

Saving the species also allows people to preserve their medical benefits. Firstly, humans are contingent upon plant and animal species for medical resources. Experts have proclaimed “the rainforest [as the] ultimate chemical laboratory […]. This makes rainforest [and its inhabitants, to be] an excellent reservoir of medicine and chemical templates, with which researchers can create new drugs [; potentially finding a cure for various, uncured diseases such as cancer]” (Environment News). This evidence states that people need to make a considerate effort to save the animals. If humanity wants to keep its medical industry and development prospering, and to maintain ambitions of finding cures for various life threatening diseases, they must conserve the specie’s population and health. In addition, not protecting these species can jeopardize the sensitive balance and structure of the food- chain. More than twenty- thousand species are nearly extinct (Dell’Amore).The ecosystem is at great risk because, such a large number of species are extinct, whereas “when one species dies, an ecosystem [can] readjust, but with such a massive attack, [the] entire ecosystems [are to] collapse” (De Koster). Thus, indicating that humans should protect and preserve endangered species, if the food-chain is to remain intact and balanced. The imbalance of …show more content…
Human society, is slaughtering these species by creating more roads, taking away their habitats. But, most importantly humans are responsible for the largest extinction of the era. To start, humans are harming the species by disrupting their habitats at a very rapid speed, a rate so high that “experts estimate that [the planet is] losing hundred and thirty-seven plant, animal and insect species every day, due to […] deforestation [and other forms of habitat loss]” (Taylor, County). The rate of habitat destruction is increasing by the day; so much that experts are saying: “it’s become a race against time to [… save species] before their native habitats are destroyed” (Environmental News). This clarifies that humans have no regards and value for the planet and they do not seem to care if the species have a home to live in and rely on. Furthermore, the loss of habitat causes species to relocate to a different environment, which puts the native species of that area in danger of disappearing. Also increase competition for food, land and other, limited resources of the miniscule habitat. Subsequently, placing man- made facilities, such as roads and highways in a natural, environment results in a negative impact on species, thus leading to a higher percentage of road kills and extinct species.
