How can we protect endangered animals?
In your English class you have been talking about endangered species, animals or plants that will likely become extinct. Your English teacher has asked you to write an essay.
Write an essay using all the notes and give reasons for your point of view.
Around the world many wildlife species are in danger of extinction. How can we protect endangered animals?
- hunting wild animals
- . .......(your own idea)
These days even more and more animals and plants are becoming extinct. That means they must be protected in order to maintain the number of animals or plants, which are threatened by extinction.
The real question is how to protect them. For example, pollution is a huge threat to every single animal or plant. Pollution is the reason for global warming, which causes the destruction of many animals' habitat. For example, the icy parts in the north and south are melting very slowly, which puts penguins and polar bears in danger. In order to prevent that people shouldn't throw away junk in the nature and should start recycling more.
Pollution is not the only reason for the extinction of animals. Unfortunately, many wild animals are being hunted nowadays. This is mainly because of their beautiful fur, which is "perfect" for making coats. In order to help many people have decided not to wear leather or fur at all.
Every year dozens of forests are being destroyed by people who need to open more place for construction. If they want to save animals from extinction, they first have to reduce the construction, which will save a lot of forests and therefore – animals's habitat. (!!!)
All these problems have solutions. Animals and plants are very important for our planet and, since we are the ones who destroy them, it is up to us to do the right thing and protect them.

Essay on Endangered Species

Endangerment is a broad issue, one that involves the animals as well as the environments where they live and interact with one another. In order to solve or even slightly elevate this problem, every aspect must be studied. So exactly what could cause the endangerment of animals? There are several factors of which only a few will be discussed.
One of the main aspects is that of habitat destruction. Of course our planet is continually changing, causing habitats to be altered and modified, but these tend to happen at a gradual pace. This allows most species to adapt to the changing environment, where only a slight impact may take place. However, when changes occur at a fast pace, there is little or no time for…show more content…
Due to this moratorium, some whale species, such as the Grey whale, have made a remarkable comeback, while others still remain endangered (Reichhardt p. 322).
Disease, pollution, and limited distribution are more factors that threaten various plant and animal species. If a species does not have the natural genetic protection against particular pathogens, an introduced disease can have severe effects on that specie. For example, rabies and canine distemper viruses are presently destroying carnivore populations in East Africa (Campbell). Domestic animals often transmit the diseases that affect wild populations; demonstrating again how human activities lie at the root of most causes of endangerment. Pollution has seriously affected multiple terrestrial and aquatic species, and limited distributions are frequently a consequence of other threats; populations confined to few small areas due to of habitat loss, for example, may be disastrously affected by random factors.
The benefits of saving endangered species are great in numbers. Many plants and animals hold medicinal, agricultural, commercial and recreational values. They must all be protected and saved so that future generations can experience their presence and value.
Plants and animals are responsibly for a variety of useful medications. In fact about forty percent of all prescriptions written
