There are 2,266 endangered species on this earth as of 9/13/16 (fws.gov). That’s a pretty big number if you ask me. We need to protect the animals of this earth. In my humble opinion, other animals have an equal right to this plant.

Humans have caused the destruction of their habitats, killed them for really lame reasons (e.g. elephant tusks or tiger skin), captured them, turned them into production machines, and many other horrendous things.

People should respect other animals and support their protection. Let us do our thing and let them do theirs!

    I love this Andreas! At what point are we going to stop. You should look into the poaching of endangered species in countries like China. They sell the pelts and what not, and endanger species even further. Do you think there’s a way to reverse the damage that humanity has done? Just something to think about.

    Andreas, I completely agree with your opinion on this terrible matter. Animals must be treated the same way as us humans and anything less is just unacceptable. I love that you included the facts because it strongly supports both your argument and the point your trying to make. You also made the view of animal mistreatment engraved in my mind, which is a great way for me to see the struggle.

    I completely agree with your post. However, even if we were somehow able to stop the effects of our encroachment on to endangered animal’s territory and stop the killing of animals all together, we still would have caused irreversible damage. For example by having such a low population of cheetahs, some 7,500, there is too low of a population to prevent against the negative effects of inbreeding which further lower the population due to decreased fertility and survival of cubs. http://www.awf.org/wildlife-conservation/cheetah
