Extinction and Endangerment of Animals

Post  Joshua T on Sun Nov 24, 2013 8:33 pm

A question that is floating in my head is, "Why are animals becoming extinct?" The answer to that question is humans! Humans are slowly destroying the world. Factories are being built where trees have been cut down. The place that those trees were was a home to animals. If an animal has adapted to live in an area over a period of a long time the animal will die. The poaching of exotic animals such as Lions, Tigers, and even Elephants in Africa is uncontrollable. Only 12 countries in all of Africa has laws against poaching. These laws aren't even enforced by cops or the government. Unlike Canada hunting has a limit per year. For example in Canada lets say that you can only hunt 6 deer per year, in Africa you could poach over thousands of animals and you wouldn't be punished for this. Elephants are poached for their ivory tusks and then their bodies are left to rot under the hot sun. Tigers are use and then their skin is peeled and their teeth are ripped of. The skin is used for the luxury of other people to wear. This is unbelivable! Their skins are also used for carpets! How would someone be proud of having the skin of an animal on their house floor. That is disgusting. Japanese are the number one source of the poaching of Whales and Dolphins and Sharks. The sharks are caught and their fins are cut of. Later these fins are used to make a shark fin soup. The soup has no flavor and it is only eaten in japan to show your richness and wealth. Whales are poached for their fat. Japanese boats spear them and the get then on their ships. They take all the lard out of the whales and then they throw it back into the ocean. Dolphins are killed and then eaten. The is a beach in Japan called the beach of blood. It is called like that because the water is blood due to the fact that so many dolphins are killed in that beach. The government of Japan refuses that they are doing anything bad to the world and they are doing under a sustained amount. 1,000,000 dolphins a year is not a sustained amount and neither a healthy amount. Hopefully the world can come together and realize what they are doing and fix the problems. Some extinct/endangered animals are:

-The Dodo
-Dinosaurs
-Passenger Pigeon
-Great Auk
-Tasmanian Tiger
-Large Rodents
-The Saber Toothed Tiger
-Baiji White Dolphin
-The Quagga
-Steller's Sea Cow

I actually read the whole post! Good job... I think that this getting worse and worse and we can improve it. It is really sad. We should reduce the amount of hunting and fishing.

In life, there is like an animal cycle, which is kind of like the balance of an animal eating the other and the other eating another. If ever one animal goes extinct, it damages the cycle, every animal will start disappearing, which could be one of the worst problems ever. In order to fix this problem they should create huge organizations to protect the animals that are going extinct, it is a very serious problem and people should really start worrying more about it. Nice blog joshua!

That's so sad, and the worst part is its because of us humans! Sharks are also being killed because in Asia they take the fins of the sharks, and then dump the sharks back in the water. Elephants are dying because of us too, because people take the tusks from the elephants, but they make sure they get the whole thing, so they kill the elephant to do it. I hope it all comes to a stop soon before we endanger another animal!
