Saving Animals From Extinction
Protecting animals from extinction is an important issue to think about. It is definitely true that the interference of human activity with wildlife is one of the primary reasons for making some species endangered. Today, everyone knows that we must make sure every species is preserved. There are two different methods to achieve this.
The traditional way to protect animals is creating zoos, botanical gardens and aquariums. Animals are taken out of their natures and put into these institutions where scientists and caretakers can observe, feed and protect them. In this method, there is no attempt to preserve the natural environment and animals live individually in captivity. They encourage animals to breed in zoos until they are safe from extinction. However, this animal protection method is not very beneficial for some reasons. First of all, human created protection places like zoos harm animals by removing them from their natural habitat. They may not make animals breed since living in captivity does not encourage animals to reproduce. Animals can reproduce better with protection programs that allow them to stay in wild. In addition, animals have behavioral problems when they are kept away from their nature as they are not able to run around or hunt.
National parks, the other method of animal protection, are created to preserve biological resources in their natural environments so there is no human intervention. This method of biodiversity protection is much harder than creating zoos, botanical gardens or aquariums as you may not be able to know where to draw the lines. It is hard to decide how big these environments should be. On the other hand, it is a great way of saving animals from extinction and letting them live in the wild at the same time. By making a national park, you preserve many species as they live together. You protect the whole environment.
