It is an undeniable fact that many wild animals are at the verge of extinction. At this juncture, some feel that all of them need protection, while others think that it should be given only to those who face extreme threat. I would align to the first view.
The reason why some feel that wildlife conservation should be made exclusively to selected species is because of the increased incidents of species extinction. To be precise, each year, at least one wildlife species is being vanished from the earth. The number of animals like the African rhinoceros, Siberian tigers and Himalayan pandas is now at an all-time low. Therefore, it becomes the responsibility of the governments to preserve their lives and minimize the threat they face.
However, others feel that protection should be given to all animals that are categorized as ‘wild’, and this is because of the strong interdependence between them. For example, if the number of wild buffaloes and wild goats declines beyond a limit, many big carnivores like lions and tigers would face natural extinction, out of starvation. Hence, an organized plan has to be formulated to protect the whole wildlife as a collective unit.
In my opinion, wild animals have their own distinct style of life, and except in exceptional cases, it is not advisable to interfere with it to give selective protection.
In conclusion, if an overall protection is provided to the entire wildlife, it would be better. However, it is pivotal to prevent the extinction of endangered species.
