There is many things that endangered species are used for, including our medicine and ecosystem, so why would we not preserve them at all costs? Well there is reason to be against this question, as much as there is agreeing with it. Through out this essay the writer will look at the different reasons, in which money should be no object in saving the endangered. We need them for such reasons like, maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Also the writer will point out some of the flaws, why we shouldn’t spend all the funding on the endangered. How do we know the money is going to all the right animals, plants etc. One of the main factors for the preserving biodiversity at all costs, would be or medical health. More than a quarter of our medicines, for example, antibiotics and pain killers, are made from many of the endangered species that has been tested. There has only been a tiny portion of these species, that has been used for research so far. Surely people need these types of things to survive. It would cause a lot of sickness and un happiness to people throughout the world. Anti cancer agents, are also another medicine that is made from endangered species, including animals and plants. ‘Decreasing an area’s biodiversity only lessens the chance of finding more suck breakthroughs’. (Planet Green Oct 2012). If there was more money being put into preserving more of these endangered species, who knows what scientist could discover next. In another point of view, if we do spend all this money into research and saving the endangered, where do we put all the animals, plants etc. There may not be enough habitat for the endangered species to grow substantially again. Human population is growing more and more every day, and already uses quite a bit of space in this world. Endangered species have declined by fifty percent population in the last ten years, ‘confined to a fragment area of less than 5,000 square kilometres of habitat’. (N.S 2012).
