Animal Protection and Welfare

The need for steps to be taken to protect wildlife is increasing day by day. Humans tend to be carefree about the population of the animals, and they don’t realize that their actions have to lead to many species of animals being extinct and many to the brink of extinction. People need to realize that such ignorance towards to dwindling population will affect the balance and will also deprive humans of the basic amenities that animals provide.

In many countries, there are wildlife parks and sanctuaries which protect these animals from poachers and save them from getting harmed. These protected parks have led to an increase in the population of certain species in the habitat. The project tiger program in India has led to an increase in the population of tiger in India and has brought the population back from the point of the endangered category.

The reason people should care about the protection of animals is that the human population is dependent on animals. We get food, medicine, clothing etc. from animals. Just because animals cant communicates or speak doesn’t give us the right to do anything with there lives. They have the right to live freely in their habitat. An authority in the subject of animal protection is the HSUS CEO, you should definitely read up on his blog if you’re interested.

The extinction of a single species will lead to disturbing the balance of the ecosystem, and the impact is bound to affect humans in one way or the other. As the most advanced and intelligent species on the planet it’s our moral obligation to take care of the lesser intelligent species and ensure their survival.

Take the case of honeybees they help in pollination of the crops without them we will face huge problems. They help in pollination of agricultural plants as well as the flower. Agricultural plants are then consumed by humans not only for eating purposes but also for medicinal and other purposes but the population of bees is decreasing, and it’s going to have adverse effects on humans. These plants make oxygen without which humans being wont to survive. If you take one participating species away from a food chain, the whole chain gets disturbed and will rearrange and that, in turn, will affect other food chains.

Animals are still being hunted and killed for enough with all the laws of wildlife protection and wildlife parks. Rhinoceros horns and elephant tusks are being sold for high prices and authorities are not doing anything to stop such practices.Human beings are losing there humanity and are not realizing the pain and suffering of animals.

Our future generations deserve to have all the facilities that we have had the pleasure of having and they deserve to enjoy them too but that cannot be possible if we continue to take everything for granted and keep exploiting every resource possible and pushing every species to the bring of extinction which leads such huge change in balance of the ecosystem that it leads to the extinction of us human beings only. So the time is now to stop thinking and start working towards a better future which is only possible if all the species exist and live together and contribute towards each other lives.
