I think I'll do a few adopt an animal programs! And donate money! There are plenty of smaller ways we can help as well^^

Oh and I forgot to thank Solitary for the topic link, i'll be sure to check it out!

I hear the oil spill has gotten cleaned up a bit?
And on the news I heard of a rare species of whale that was saved, but a few days later it passed away.... poor whale!

I wonder how the progress on water or algea fuled cars is coming along...

I had to do a project in biology with this - we had to do a research project on endangered animals in Canada. I still have the website link somewhere, it's on a paper but it's an interesting site to find out more about them.

It's sad to see so man animals being endangered, although there are those who try to stop it. Which is a really good thing.

My favorite endangered animal would be the Swift Fox, I did my project on it and I still have to book. They're really fascinating.

I did a lot of projects on endangered animals for my school. I've done one on African Wild Dogs, and explained their habitat, diet, ect. I mainly explained why they were endangered and how we could help stop it. Mine is on a bristle board, so I can see if I can try to find it (I did it way back in Grade 2, so its not the best and it may be hard to find if we even still have it).
It is a shame there's so many endangered animals out there. I have donated to the WWF couple times, so i'm glad that I am at least helping.^^
They sent me a card back saying my money was going towards helping the tigers.

It's kind of uplifting to hear that so many people care about endangered animals and are actually doing things to help them, whether minor or large.

I've seen that at least one species goes extinct each year, which is disheartening.

Even if you can't find a donating place near you, you can always donate online.^^
I find donating online easier, though you'll probably have to use a credit card or something. I believe WWF allows you to donate online.
My aunt actually works for the WWF and she helps with saving whales. =)

well mine is on the list with the wolves and pandas. but for another is Rhinos clearly stated only few having remained during the civil war, even Elephants, because of their ivory trunks, the ivory was used in war for materials being made for weapons, so they killed those large mammals for that reason, poaching is another issue, in Africa, elephants being shot at for intruding onto peoples home lands and crops. But think about it, whose been around longer? Humans? or Elephants? so the elephants basically planted out their routes thousands of years ago. humans want to protect their crops, yet instead of signaling them off they decide to kill em.

I support wolves. I watch wolf tributes on YouTube all the time and most say wolves are consistently killed for their fur! The same for Snow Leopards. They are killed for their beautiful pelt. Though, I cannot blame humans. We have been doing this for a long time now. I don't believe it is right, but there are only a few things we can do to stop them.

I actually support Amur Leopards more than wolves, for Amur Leopards are the most rarest big cat. They are most likely rarer than wolves, and if i could, i would adopt and donate to one with as much money as i could. I seriously think Amur Leopards need attention, since maybe less than 100 live in the wild.

But don't think i don't support wolves. Wolves are not pests. Nor are foxes or tigers or any other animal. We invaded their habitat- and they need somewhere to live. Why people, why do we kill them for medicine and fur coats when we have fake furs? ;A;

I do not agree. Besides your argument is invalid since meat in the store also comes from hunting and fishing. Besides they have controled hunting and fishing. Meaning you can only hunt and fish for certain animals at certain times of the year. It's also illegal to hunt or fish for endangered species. So animals were I live like the bull trout/dolly varden,black rockfish,grey wolf,and others are protected from hunting and fishing. Also animals hunt for food so people can to. Even when your eating fruit from a plant you are doing pretty much the same thing as hunting. Plants and animals are both liviing organisms. Most if not all life on earth has to feed off another organism to survive. Some animals feed of plants.(It has been discovered that plants can give off distress signals.) Other animals feed off the animals that feed on plants. Since humans are animals to we were built to do the same thing.

Hunting is a very touchy subject for many- although it may seem cruel and wrong in the eyes of those who care for the well being of the animals, we must remember that there are people who have made their livelihoods on hunting for hundreds and thousands of years, many of which are avid nature lovers themselves. Hunters who practice appropriate hunting techniques in terms of conservation should not be frowned upon- those that should be frowned upon are poachers, if anyone.
You must respect other people's opinion on the matter- nothing can be accomplished until everyone is in agreement and understands the other side to the story~

Anyways this really isn't the topic to discuss this necessarily, so let's try to steer back on track^^
