Removing "Life" from "Wildlife" ! I am against it because I don't like to become "wild"
Millions of different species on our planet are essential for many important things in our lives. This complex web of life provides the natural system on which we depend - from clean air and water to fertile soil and a stable climate. It provides us with food, medicines and materials, and supports millions of jobs. And it also affects us, making our lives rich in many ways. But the wildlife of our planet is in crisis - their Numbers have been reduced by more than half since 1970, and the species are becoming dangerously extinct.
Wildlife helps maintain the ecological balance of nature. Killing of carnivores increases the number of herbs which in turn affect forest vegetation, thus leaving the forest due to lack of food they come out of the forest to agricultural land and destroy our crops. It shows us that wildlife helps maintain ecological balance even though they are predators of each other. Animals are great predators which is the major cause of environmental development. So, once the balance and stability deteriorate, it leads to many problems.
Everything we eat actually comes from an animal or plant. While we do not eat as much "wildlife" as we used to eat because the food supply chain has become so industrial, at one time crops and animals were wildlife. Many people still depend on wildlife for their food. Without a variety of food sources, our nutrition is affected. Protecting wildlife and natural habitats strengthens food security worldwide. We can also improve nutrition by returning to more wild food sources and diversifying our food.
Elephants and rhinoceros are dying of illegal hunting, more than natural causes or conflicts with humans. Their body parts are sold illegally as trophies, traditional medicines, or lucrative black-market turnips - but these are not the only known pikederm wildlife species that are slaughtered for human benefit. Big cats like tigers and leopards are killed for their bones. African wild dogs and other large carnivores die at the hands of villagers guarding their cattle. Like chimps in central and west Africa, great monkeys are hunted as bushmeat and their children are bought as pets. Penguins are caught for their scales and meat. There should be strict rules about hunting of animals because wildlife is not less than a treasure for us and we should protect them.
