The Issue of Endangered Species
Why endangered species?
The Real Problem.
Species are becoming distinct at a very scary rate. People are not treating animals right and they don't even realize it therefore causing species to become extinct faster. This extinction of animals is hurting not only their habitats but also other species that live there and other habitats around them. Pollution is one of the many things that is hurting some species habitat, because of pollution the habitats that the species live in are being endangered. The plants or food they eat could be damaged and could make the species deathly ill.The building of new homes is also detrimental to species habitat. building new houses and buildings means you have to clear land which could also be a important habitat to some kind of species. by building those houses and buildings you are destroying and taking away the species homes.Deforestation is also a growing problem, these days getting rid of the forests and their trees also means getting rid of some species homes which could be very important to research in the years to come not allowing us to advance in that are of science. All animals deserve to live, even if they are "ugly to look at,undesirably or potentially dangerous, they all play a role in nature." (2013,Granby Zoo,1) Many people think that animals tend to their own and they are not important to us when animals help us in many ways. Animals create equilibrium in the world, the food chain would have tumbled to the ground if not for animals."Strange as it may seem, the killer whale affects the diet of the Bald Eagle in Alaska! Researchers have found that an increase in killer whales results in a decrease in Sea Otters one of their favorite prey items. Otters, for their part eat sea urchins.The few otters, the more sea urchins their are Sea Urchins are the large algae that serve as hiding places for fish and invertebrates along banks. Thus, the more sea urchins, the fewer algae and...the fewer hiding places! As a result, the fish move elsewhere. In Alaska, Bald Eagles are raptors who subsist mainly on the fish in the shallow water on the edges of the ocean. Without these fish, they have to find other food. (2013, Granby Zoo, 1) Endangered species are escalating quickly and are very important to humans many more ways than most people think. Humans are the biggest threat to species these days because they don't care enough to take care of the world and the things around them.
