We Should Protect Endangered Animals
What we know as the circle of life shows that all living creatures are all linked together in some way. We as humans need to do our part in order to protect nature’s gifts, especially those that are endangered or threatened in order to sustain the circle of life. So let just take a quick second and imagine something really quick. Image you’re in a city walking around just like any other day, and you don’t come across a single person. Have they all died? What has the world come to? Friends and family are just disappearing? Is the quote “If I was the last person on Earth” funny anymore? This is called extinction. Thousands of animals are threatened to become extinct. So that is why today I’m persuading you all to want to help protect endangered species. a)
