Why not learn more about Resources?

Facts About Wildlife Conservation and Why You Should be Aware of It

Even though it is a relief to hear that more and more people are realizing the importance and value of conserving the world’s natural resources, it still is sad to hear that only a handful are dead serious and committed on protecting the animals and wildlife of this very same world we live in. Yes, it’s heartbreaking to hear news about deforestation and the flooding caused by it, sea and air pollution, and mining, but it is as equally painful to realize that destroying the earth also means killing all those animals and wildlife along the way.

Animals of different classifications, whether domesticated or wild, are currently in a state of constant threat and abuse from humans, and it seems like no one is really that interested in curbing this trend. Fortunately, there has been a significant increase on the number of organizations, most of which are non-profit, that cater the need of protecting animals from getting wiped out of the face of the earth. There are those like The Humane Society of the United States that are taking a rather aggressive stance against people and groups abusing animals by filing cases against them; the same group is also responsible for several lobbying initiatives for governments to act on stopping and preventing animal abuse.

While the work of the HSUS is a non-profit group bent on promoting animal welfare, some groups with the same noble intention focus on a different aspect of animal protection, which in this case is wildlife conservation. Wildlife conservation covers a rather broad spectrum that includes the protection of not just endangered animals but also plant species and their habitat.

The idea is to ensure that everything the earth has right now will be preserved, or at least what’s left of it for the future generations to make use of it. And while animal protection has this aggressive approach towards those who abuse and kill animals, wildlife conservation is more on raising awareness, more specifically on the importance of wildlife.

Though it’s sad to realize that not every government out there is active or even willing to promote wildlife conservation areas, the positive thing is that there still are some that have recently been very active in terms of creating policies that focus on the protection of animals in their respective jurisdictions.

In the end, the protection of animals and wildlife conservation are two concepts that might differ in some aspects, but still are undeniably linked to one goal: for humans to survive for more generations to come. The earth is a dying planet and no one can argue with that; but it does not mean we just let it die without even doing something to at least slow it down.
