Save Wild Animals
Animals in their natural state are part of the wonder of creation① and the treasure of our world. However, as a result of the steady growth of the world population, there is less and less space on our planet for wild animals. Unless something is done, some species② of animals will cease③ to exist in their wild state, which also means a disaster④ to human beings.
The main danger to animal existence comes from man’s activities. One of the most effective measures to avoid the extinction⑤ of wild animals is for all countries to create nature reserves⑥ where all the native species of animals can wander free and be protected from men. Certain rare species that are going to be extinct should be collected, fed and reproduced⑦ artificially⑧. In addition, people should realize that the loss of any species is at least the loss of a source of knowledge and a source of natural beauty. Therefore, human beings should enforce an international law forbidding the use and sale of meat, skins, horns and tusks from wild animals. We do great wrong if we allow any of their species to die out.
In conclusion, only if we human beings take some drastic measures, can wild animals be preserved. Otherwise, we, human beings, are bound to destroy ourselves.
