If you allow yourself to visualize the earth without industrialization generated by humans, you may see a substantial amount of forests, animals, and overall environmental aesthetic. Over the years humans have advanced in many areas such as industrialization, technological advancement, and nuclear weaponry. These developments were made to benefit humans, but the advancement jeopardizes the conservation of nature and the well being of the animals that roamed the earth long before us humans. The goal behind conservation is the preservation of any aspect involving nature. A large part of understanding conservation is being able to view the effort from an ethical standpoint regarding the environment (e.g. egalitarian biocentrism). There are conservation …show more content…
This means that a plant, an animal, or a human being holds the same amount of moral considerability as the other and should be cared for as such. For example, when it is found that there is an epidemic among humans, scientists in the medical field work together to find a form of prevention meanwhile a definitive cure is found. With that being said, if a species seems to be periodically dwindling, then it would make sense for humans to also find a form of prevention for it. It is agreeable that the diminishing of a species has little to no effect on human life, but that does not mean it should be overlooked. In pre-elementary and elementary years, children learn about animals in school and it is rewarding to be able to visit a zoo or travel in the future to have exposure to the wildlife discussed in school. When animals are already extinct, many humans are not even aware because it does not impact their life negatively. Many would argue that although the animal is extinct, we should still take the time to learn about it. Although, it seems rather ironic that we would implement a school curriculum to include education on extinct animals, yet our everyday decisions are the cause for that loss. Among other things, those decisions include recycling, use of plastic bags, and excessive use of motor vehicles fueled by …show more content…
The cause of death of these animals were the constant passing of vehicles in that area. Although this may seem like a very small scale in the conservation of animals, it only adds to what we can do as humans to preserve them. No single action is too small when everyone works together to give importance to animal welfare. The way in which this plan was executed was by way of numerically recording the deaths over 12 kilometers on the street where it seemed that animal death was most prevalent. This study was done over a period of time that allowed for the evidence to speak for itself. The researchers found that 31 animals were killed over a period of 16 months of research. The results fueled an indication as to where animals were being killed the most, which allowed for the action plan to take place. The researchers now had the knowledge to infer that these roadkill hotspots were perhaps reoccuring because the highway was in the way of the animal’s everyday commute to get food or get back to their shelter. If the government invested more funds into the conservation of animals such as this one, it could help to identify the issue where there could be an advancement in the care and maintenance of the earth and all organisms that dwell in
