Protection of Endangered Species

Protecting endangered species means safeguarding the habitats that sustain the lives of endangered species. Although species do go extinct naturally over millions of years, we’re now witnessing extinction rates thousands of times higher than those prior to human existence. There are many reasons why we should conserve plants and animals. Some species may hold potential for undiscovered medicines; others may create a damaging ripple effect when they go missing from their native landscapes. The most convincing argument, however, might be that when we conserve the lands and waters all species need to survive, we are in essence protecting those of humans, too.
