Different animal species go extinct everyday, and the main causes are habitat loss and pouching. My favorite animal , the Amur Tiger, is a tiger subspecies with only about 540 that is endangered with a rather high extinction chance, and there is a small chance that it will survive this decade. Animal extinction slithers around like a round island burrowing boa, which is also an extinct species. You might not know but animals are very important, way more than being a food source for humans and other animals.
The dodo bird was a flightless bird that was native to the island of Mauritius that became extinct in 1662 by sailors and invasive species. The woolly mammoth is a species of mammoth that got extinct by human hunting it, combined with climate change. The saber-tooth cat was a large cat species that went extinct because of lack of prey, loss of habitat, and guess what humans hunting it. Many species went extinct for the survival of human being, which to me seems unfair. Here I made a poem about it.
Can you see this,
This situation isn't to dismiss,
Every time you blink,
A species will be extinct,
Doesn't it seem unfair,
Since we breathe the same air,
Walk on the same ground,
And hear the same sound,
This world is theirs too,
They don't just belong to a zoo,
Do you understand,
This is all our land.
If you read the 'about me' post, you'd probably notice that I admire the environment a lot, but I'd also mention that my favorite animal is the Amur Tiger, and all species in the cat family. That is why my avatar is a picture of a cat.
My personality is not like a cat, because in my opinion cats are the closest creatures to gods. So my avatar does not represent me, because I am not god. My avatar is just a picture of a cat because I love cats.
