    I am very excited by your post “Endangered Species In China,” because I feel like many of your ideas about how endangered species in China line up very closely with mine and I feel that in the future your work will get even better and better. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Through this article I’ve learned that it…Read More

    • Dear justin:

      I am excited by your post , “Endangered species in China ,” because I too care about this topic. I agree that it should be brought to attention and now.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ This would show how much the Chinese government is actually clamping down on these criminals and whether all those bills and legislations are just for public appeal.” I think this is well written because it shows what you learned by doing your research. You learned how messed up the Chinese government is when it comes to endangered species.

      Another sentence that I saw was, “ I think our solution is better than most others because mainly ours has it so the average joe can participate very easily compared to like trying to get legislation to pass a new law or going into that dangerous kind of market and capture it all on camera.” This stood out for me because it shows your solution to this issue that you are talking about.

      I do agree with you that this issue needs to be brought to attention. One reason I say this is because thousands of species are dying and humans can help stop it. Another reason I agree is because, like you said, species are dying at 1000 times the rate of “natural.”

      Have you seen this video? I thought you might be interested in this because of the brutal evidence for the killing of sharks for fins.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing your next blog due to your captivating writing. Well said blog.

    • Hey Justin!
      I love your article on potential ways to stop the underground trade of shark fin soup! I too am passionate about putting an end to shark fining. I really like how in your article you described what kind of market shark fins are in and how dangerous it would be to go undercover in this trade. I like how you brought up ways in which government agencies could put an end to the shark fin trade. I found an article which talks about how shark fin soup is moving away from mainland China and spreading to other parts of Asia. I hope you enjoy! https://wildaid.org/sharksincrisis/

    • Hi Justin:
      I like your article very much, and I also like your point. China does a poor job of protecting endangered species. This has also led to the extinction of many rare animals. China should increase protection of rare animals. Here is a link to get you to know more.

    • Hi Justin,
      I am strongly agreeing with your post, because I think you are addressing a really big problem. I hope this topic will get more attention in the future.
      One sentence that stood out to me was where you talked about the net worth of the black market.
      I found a really good article you might also like.
