Animals and wildlife all over the place have been declining in numbers. For example, in 2001 animal species on average have been declining in population by around 60%! Part of it has to do with human cruelty and some of it has to do with weather and climate change over time. So, what can we do to prevent the changes occuring in the animals life?
Some ways we can help stop the destruction of animal shelters is to: not litter, stop destroying popular animal sanctuarys like the forests and jungles, and destroying land that the animals live on for structures like buildings and houses. Most of the ways animals are running out of places to live has to do with human cruelty. For example, the city Manaus is eating into the Amazon Rainforest. In 2015 the settlement known as Monte Horebe started clearing the Amazon Rainforest with chainsaws and fire for the use of land.
Another reason wildlife is running out of places to call home is simply because of the climate changing around them. For example, Moose have been forced to go farther North into Canada because of less snow and warmer temperatures can lead to more winter ticks. Thousands of parasites can feed on a single moose at once to feed of the host (the moose) and weaken its organs, causing organ failure, leading to certain death.
Do you think that humans or climate is the reason animals are being forced out of their home?
Are you seeing these changes in your life?
Do you think the government or the companies building into their shelters should be stopped?
