Case Study: My Experience With Animals

Protecting Animals and the Wildlife

Although there has been a steady increase in awareness on the conservation of our natural resources, there’s no denying that only a few are advocating for the protection and conservation of the earth’s animal species. 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.

Whether the talk is about domesticated animals or pets that we give extra effort to take care or animals that live and breed out there in the wild, the one thing that everyone must understand right now is that they’ve all become prone to some type of abuse. But as of late, it’s really nice to hear that some organizations, although incrementally, are doing their part to help protect the animals, more specifically those ones that have their existence already threatened. Some of these organizations such as The Humane Society of the United States are taking an aggressive approach towards animal protection, and in doing so they are taking people responsible for animal abuse to court while at the same time lobbying in various governments and jurisdictions to help in fighting animal abuse.

And while the work of the HSUS is primarily into animal welfare, there also are those that are focused on 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 entire concept of wildlife conservation is to preserve what’s left of the planet for the future generations to use and survive with. 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.

The bottom line is that even if animal protection and wildlife conservation are taking two unique directions, they both will end up having to serve the same purpose, which is to allow humans to survive with a manageable and viable habitat for future generations. It may be true that the earth is a dying planet, so the least we could do is at least contribute in slowing down that process as much as possible.
