There is no question about the fact that there are many species facing extinction each day. Looking on WWF’s list of endangered species (https://www.worldwildlife.org/species/directory?direction=desc&sort=extinction_status), there are 17 species currently critically endangered (including one with the scientific name “gorilla gorilla gorilla”) that we know of. With regards to this, I value co-existing with the wildlife around us and making sure we respect their boundaries. Animals play such an important role in our ecosystem and it’s only fair that we treat them with the same respect and care that we do with other humans. There are many species that have been forced to adapt around our human lifestyles and have therefore turned to a nocturnal way of living. This isn’t natural for them and so my vision is one where we don’t drive animals away from their natural cycles, nor do we drive them towards extinction. An intervention for this could be stricter laws towards the protection of species, as well as educating the public about the importance of certain species and how their actions and choices as consumers have an impact on the populations of wildlife around them.
