How Can We Save Them?
2. Encourage other people to learn more about endangered species. So many people do not know about animals that are considered to be endangered. The other day, I had a conversation with some of my classmates about how the sea otters are close to becoming extinct and I was upset. My friends had no clue! I told them to search it and see what is going on in our world, because we need to not only know about the animals in general, but we need to know how to help them! My friends ended up looking it up and posting articles about it on Facebook. This got many people to view the article and get involved.
3. Recycle and reduce energy and goods consumption. For now on, I will not throw out all of my cans and my water bottles that I drink during the school day. Instead, I will keep a bag in my locker that I will put them. At the end of the week, I will bring it to the supermarket with my parents and put it through the machines so that my trash can be recycled.
4. Never purchase products made from threatened or endangered species I will apply this to my everyday life by looking at the labels of what I buy. For example, I will not buy anything with fur from animals and duck feathers. This is what could make it or break it for the animals in our wildlife!
5. Make your neighborhood friendly to backyard wildlife; for example grow native plants that provide nuts, berries and nectar to feed wildlife, plant a butterfly garden, put up a bat house or bird house, and build a brush pile. I have always had a big backyard with nothing but a pool and lounge chairs in it. Recently, I told my mom that we have to make our environment more animal friendly, so we bought bird houses and a bird bath, so that birds could feel at home on my property. We also have looked up different types of plants to grow in our backyard, so that the animals that walk on our property will have something to eat when "visiting."
The multiple species shown in this picture are all currently endangered animals. We need to stop so many animals from becoming endangered and start helping them right now!
A Cheetah Cub Getting Fed
Volunteering at a wildlife refuge or park is a great way to help. We can take care of various types of animals to prevent them becoming extinct. This picture is showing a young cheetah cub getting fed and taken care of.
Black Rhinoceros are currently an endangered species and are in serious threat of becoming extinct due to humans and climate change. Climate change can not be controlled, but we can control ourselves and others around us by spreading the word and being an advocate for them!
