We all know that extinction is a major problem/threat to animals and plants. We have to save animals and plants from this major problem/threat.
First of all, let’s learn about extinction. When a specific specie doesn’t exist anymore it is said that it is extinct. Let’s suppose that there are 20,000 dodos. If all of them are killed the dodos are extinct. If 19,000 dodos are killed then the dodos are endangered because there are only 1,000 dodos left. It may seem like a lot, but if 19,000 dodos were killed so quickly, then what about 1,000 dodos?
Dodos are actually extinct birds
Now, let’s see what is the cause of extinction. About 98 percent of reasons are from humans! yes, we are the main reasons behind everything. Before,people used to hunt for food. So, I don’t blame them . But now people even hunt for fun.
Now let’s look at what the word endangered means. As in the previous example, endangered means that the specific specie is close to extinction it is considered as an endangered specie.
In ‘protection of species 02’ I will explain how humans are the main reason for extinction.
