Wildlife is a vital part of our ecosystem. Wildlife includes all animals and other organisms. Many animals are in the danger of extinction and strongly need to be saved. Animals add to the natural beauty of the earth. Humans’ activities become a big threat to the animals. Hunting and fishing is a sport or recreation for some people. Animals get killed indiscriminately. Some people kill animals for making profits by selling their skins, meat etc. Poaching is done in some of the areas. Elephants are killed for their ivory, alligators for their skin, birds for their feathers, furs, hens for their meat. The list is non ending. Hunting of animals is not just a cruelty done to the animals but also a shameful thing. By doing this, we make loss of ourselves too. Deforestation is also one of the major causes of their extinction. As the trees are cut for fuel, timber, wood, paper, thus the forest area is getting diminished. Thus, the animals depending on the plants for their food also starve. Due to the rapid urbanisation, trees and forests are being cut for the space to live in. Hence, making a large number of animals homeless. Their natural habitat gets destroyed. Animals are an important part of the food chain. Nature maintains a delicate balance between plants and animals.Killing animals create an imbalance in the ecosystem. We must promote wildlife awareness among each other through posters or by educating them. As otherwise ultimately, the loss is ours only. There is a strong need for wildlife conservation.
