Decreasing wildlife in United States of America
Humans, animals and plants are all important elements of the natural environment on the earth.
This place equally belongs to all the living creatures that live on this planet and they completely
rely on this for their food, habitat and living. But humans are cruelly destroying plants and
animals and thus creating a danger for all. The destruction of forests and habitats is causing the
extinction of many animals every day on the earth.
The United States hold a great treasure of distinct landscapes like polar ice, semi tropical jungles,
windblown prairies, temperate rainforests, alpine peaks, deserts and coral reefs. Its habitats
include some of the most fertile land on Earth and some of the most barren western salt flats.
Striking and a diverse wildlife still flourishes in most parts of this country, including bald eagle,
moose, caribou, wolverine, bison, grizzly bear, elk, mountain lion, musk ox, polar bear,
and wolf. Thousands of species of fish, amphibians, reptiles, and birds also live in the United
States of America.
But lately many of wild animals and birds such as pandas, bears, tigers, alligators, whales,
wolves, moose, kites, and caribou are facing with the threat of extinction. Their decline has been
increased by the destruction of their habitat and their nesting places by the widespread use of
chemicals and pesticides which enter their food chains leading to sterility and mass deaths. These
help less creatures are forced to leave their natural habitat and live in a stray condition which is
resulting to the death of many species.
Apart from this many of the cruel acts of humans are also leading to the death of many
endangered species. For a sport many human indulge in hunting and kill this wild animals
carelessly. For an instance, when sport hunter looks for hunting lions, they generally prefer to
target the largest possible healthy animal that is likely to be leading a pride like males. Killing of
a pride leader often results in the deaths of many other lions in the pride in particular, young
lions that are still dependent on their mothers. In the brutal world of lion society, when a new
male takes over a pride whose leader has been killed, he usually kills all the cubs in order to clear
the way for the birth and nurturing of his own progeny. Even when the pride is led by more than
one dominant male a frequent occurrence the death of one male leaves the pride more vulnerable
to a takeover attempt by a group of males from the outside. Thus, by just an sport of leisure
many of the creatures looses their lives.
It is largely for such reasons that Organizations for Animals Rights think the United States of
America should put the halt on American lion hunters for all the endangered species killings.
These Animal Welfare societies who work for Wild Animals Rescue take every measure to stop
the harsh and cruel unwanted deaths of these creatures that lose their lives either for human
leisure, for food or for their clothing’s.
Wildlife conservation and Wild Animals Rescue projects have been undertaken in most parts of
United States, both at the government as well as the individual level, to protect the rich wildlife
of the country. They work hard for Animal Welfare and to fight for their rights and to stop
destruction of their natural habitats by human source. The threatened species will definitely gain
immense benefit from conservation efforts of such Organizations for Animals Rights
substantially with time. However, the time is passing by quickly and necessary actions should be
taken fast to preserve the wildlife.
