Summary of Reasearch


Endangered species is a big problem in the world today that needs to be fixed. People need to take into consideration because it’s a big problem.”There are now 41,415 species on the IUCN Red List, and 16,306 of them are endangered species threatened with extinction. This is up from 16,118 last year. This includes both endangered animals and endangered plants.”That is a big increase from last year 16,118 more. WoW! In other words, people need to change what they're doing in their daily lives or see you later animals. Because if we can’t stop this then we’ll have no more animals and no more meat/food. While if we stop this we can have a very minimum amount of meat so we don’t get them on the extinction list again.In the last 500 years, human activity has forced over 800 species into extinction. “Loss of habitats, the spread of disease, pollution, and unsustainable fishing practices are directly related to the actions of humans and recovery from these problems is rarely straightforward.” Loss of habitats are a big part of of endangered species because people start doing construction in these animals area’s then they start having to move over and over again soon they won’t have anywhere to live. “Many nations have laws that protect conservation-reliant species: for example, forbidding hunting, restricting land development or creating preserves. Population numbers, trends and species' conservation status can be found in the lists of organisms by population.” See this is what all states should do because this could change things forever. In other words, we should all take a stand because this is a crucial thing and if we don’t we won’t have animals.
