For too long, the environment has been taken for granted. Extinction is a natural phenomenon that slowly shapes new species while existing species gradually diminish. However, due to human activity, animal extinction rates are unnaturally spiking.
Global warming, overexploitation of land and destruction of habitats create imbalanced ecosystems. Many animals no longer exist in the wild, and are found only in captivity; in zoos and reserves. Some are gone forever.
Today we understand that entire ecosystems function as a delicate balance of species interacting in a woven tapestry of interdependencies. Even from a human selfish point of view, destruction of natural environments should raise concern as they are critically important to our existence.
