Protecting Animals and the Wildlife
Even though it is a relief to hear that more and more people are realizing the importance and value of conserving the world’s natural resources, it still is sad to hear that only a handful are dead serious and committed on protecting the animals and wildlife of this very same world we live in. You probably are pretty much aware about us doing stuff that destroy the environment, i.e. mining, deforestation, industry pollution, and the like; but what you’re not really paying that much attention to is the welfare of the animals and wildlife sharing the same environment and world with us.
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. It’s good to hear though that in recent years, there have been several non-profit organizations that have been gradually campaigning for animal protection, especially those focusing on saving endangered species from becoming extinct. 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. The most accurate definition of wildlife conservation is the practice or campaign of protecting endangered animals and plant species, along with the protection and conservation of their habitat.
The idea is to ensure that everything the earth has right now will be preserved, or at least what’s left of it for the future generations to make use of it. But the job of those who promote this aren’t just about combatting those who destroy the habitat of the animals and plants head on but also raising awareness on the importance of wildlife in general.
Although it is sad that not every government or country out there is willing enough to help in the promotion of wildlife conservation, perhaps the consolation is that some governments have already taken steps to create policies designed specifically for the protection of animals.
The bottom line is that even if animal protection and wildlife conservation are taking two unique directions, they both will end up having to serve the same purpose, which is to allow humans to survive with a manageable and viable habitat for future generations. The earth is a dying planet and no one can argue with that; but it does not mean we just let it die without even doing something to at least slow it down.
