- What does “Endangered species” really mean?” An endangered species is one whose numbers are so small that it is at risk of extinction,” DoSomething.org, 11 Facts About Endangered Species.
- How concerned should we be about them? How big is the problem? All animals are interesting, fascinating, and deserve our respect. However, many scientists agree that up to 20 percent of all living animal populations will disappear within 30 years.
- Why does extinction occur? “Humans have destroyed over half of the Earth’s forests, and the remaining forest habitats are shrinking fast. Habitat loss is the biggest threat to wildlife today” (Sheppard Software, Endangered Animals, What’s the problem). “Climate change poses a fundamental threat to places, species, and people’s livelihoods,” World Wildlife Fund.
- What can we do to stop animal extinction? A. Learn about endangered animals, conservation organizations, and animal rights groups, Earth’s Endangered Creatures. B. Play. “In an effort to raise awareness among children about the importance of treating farm animals in a respectful and humane way, the European Commission has launched Farmland.” This is a game where you can plough the soil, plant crops, raise chickens or cows, etc. in an animal-friendly way. C. Join a Conservation Organization, volunteer, donate money, write letters to governments, companies, and newspapers voicing your concerns, boycott items made of fur and leather, etc.
