Protecting Animals and the Wildlife
Although there has been a steady increase in awareness on the conservation of our natural resources, there’s no denying that only a few are advocating for the protection and conservation of the earth’s animal species. Yes, it’s heartbreaking to hear news about deforestation and the flooding caused by it, sea and air pollution, and mining, but it is as equally painful to realize that destroying the earth also means killing all those animals and wildlife along the way.
Animals of different classifications, whether domesticated or wild, are currently in a state of constant threat and abuse from humans, and it seems like no one is really that interested in curbing this trend. But as of late, it’s really nice to hear that some organizations, although incrementally, are doing their part to help protect the animals, more specifically those ones that have their existence already threatened. Some of these organizations such as The Humane Society of the United States are taking an aggressive approach towards animal protection, and in doing so they are taking people responsible for animal abuse to court while at the same time lobbying in various governments and jurisdictions to help in fighting animal abuse.
The work of the HSUS is focused on on animal welfare, but some groups of similar nature are focused on wildlife conservation. Wildlife conservation covers a rather broad spectrum that includes the protection of not just endangered animals but also plant species and their habitat.
The entire concept of wildlife conservation is to preserve what’s left of the planet for the future generations to use and survive with. If animal protection deals with the aggressive approach of fighting off people who make a living out of destroying and abusing animals, wildlife conservation on the other hand contributes by raising awareness on the importance of wildlife.
Even if only a few governments and nations are taking bold steps in promoting different wildlife conservation areas, it still is good news to hear that there are those that make it a point to create policies intended to protect the animals out there in the wild.
In the end, the protection of animals and wildlife conservation are two concepts that might differ in some aspects, but still are undeniably linked to one goal: for humans to survive for more generations to come. The planet is dying and the process is already at a very alarming pace; but if we really want to save the future generations, we begin by protecting our animals.
