Rare Animals

Thursday, May 19, 2011

This world is full of fascinating creatures that walk the land, swim the seas and soar to the skies. These creatures are divided by kingdoms and all in all there are four; the protista, fungi, plantae and last but definitely not the least, the kingdom animalia. With over 2 million species called animals, kingdom animalia is the largest compared to the three kingdoms. Bears, spiders, sharks are just one of the many species belonging to this certain category. Sadly, many of these animals are close to the brink of extinction due to deforestation, oil spills and many things that the destructive man has invented for wealth and power.

Sadly, many of these animals are close to the brink of extinction due to deforestation, oil spills and many things that the destructive man will do for wealth and power. Because of this, many of them have become more vulnerable, threatened and endangered. Fortunately, there are many organizations that are doing their best to save these rare animals. Animals like the blue whale, Philippine eagle, tiger, and orangutan are considered to be rare and are facing a very high risk of endangerment in the near future. Unfortunately, there are many animals that have been extinct beyond reasonable doubt and those are the Javan Tiger, Thylacine, Dodo, Passenger Pigeon, Caribbean Monk Seal, Dimetrodon, Aurochs and Dusky Seaside Sparrow and many people are being afraid that the Alagoas Curassow, Mountain Gorilla, Arakan Forest Turtle, Darwin’s Fox, Javan Rhino, Brazillian Merganser, Gharial and Vaquita which are considered to be facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild to share the same fate as them.

Currently, 1,556 known species in the world are starting to be considered as rare animals or close to extinction day by day. In order for us to conserve the biodiversity of the planet, we must first take into consideration the reasons why animals are starting t be endangered. Habitat loss is the most widespread cause of species endangerment in the U.S. When an animal’s ecosystem is not maintained, they lose their home and are either forced to adapt to new surroundings or perish. Pollution is another factor. Also, over-exploitation, disease and climate changes contribute to the endangerment of the animals. We, humans also have an impact on the species and their environment. As human use of resources, energy and space intensified over the past few years, the diversity of life have been slowly diminishing.

Animals have done many good things for us like serving as a tourist attraction, contributing to the medical field and as identifiers to the hazards of human health. There are many things why we should support organizations that are focusing on the biodiversity of the planet earth and mentioned above are just one of those. That is why rare animals should be saved before they go extinct in the wild. Remember, that there is a food pyramid in the animal kingdom and that you should not take any element from it for it will have a domino effect.
