Many animals are being hunted to the brink of extinction to fulfil humankind’s demand and greed for decorative purposes and other reasons, Such as traditional medicine. How can this issue be tackled?
Animals are an important part of our ecosystem. But, human beings have put many animal species in danger of becoming extinct with excessive hunting for their selfish motives such as house decorations, pleasure etc. How can it be handled? It is a matter that needs to be pondered.
To commence with, the world’s population is increasing at a fast pace, which leads to more needs. To fulfil their demands, more and more forests are being cut. This leads to loss of natural habitat of animals, which endanger them and extinction of even one can cause dis-balance in ecosystem and food chain. For instance, if lions are removed from the food chain, the population of deer will increase, which in turn would require more grass to eat, resulting in a shortage of grass. As a consequence, the entire ecosystem would suffer.
In addition to this, animals are killed for ornaments, decorative pieces of art, medicines. As an example, elephants are hunted and killed for their tusk. Therefore, it is imperative to save animals from brutality. Legal authorities should make stringent laws to punish offenders. Furthermore, they must define the boundaries of forests so that no builder tries to cut forests for their residential or commercial buildings. For instance, in Coorg, the council has marked areas to protect forests and the existing habitat of elephants.
To conclude, humans are dependent on animals for food, leisure and money. Hence we all must collectively take steps to protect them from extinction. Strict laws are imposed on those who abide by Legal authorities law.
