The news that wildlife is at risk seems upsetting… in the start but numbs eventually. It doesn’t matter if it is the California condors, tigers, pandas, mountain gorillas, or the coral reefs.Is worrying about them worth it? Certainly! If cute pandas vanished, we will feel sad, but we don’t depend on them. Nevertheless, it is extremely crucial to care about humans rather than spending millions on animal preservation.Actually, extinction is natural, and the ones we are aware of is the disappearance of dinosaurs 65 million years in the past. Nonetheless, species are vanishing faster than ever. It has increased a hundredfold across the last century. The humans are to be blamed. Fortunately, humans adore the natural world, and even wild animals are thought to be fascinating, majestic, and cute.
Practical reasons to invest in wildlife preservation
Nature offers myriads of ‘Ecosystem Services’The bio-prospecting process includes exploring nature to discover useful commercial 寵物去新西蘭 products. New medicines can get discovered without trekking dangerous miles in the jungle with the dim hope of uncovering a miracle plant species. Besides, there is the issue of local people who are already familiar with the medicinal plant uses and don’t like strangers trying to designate them.The other dilemma is what happens to those species, which are not useful. For example, the Mountain Gorillas blood is impossible to hold a therapeutic use for cancer.
Fortunately, biologists revealed in 1990 that the plants and animals benefit humans by being there. They offer ‘
Ecosystem services’, which we take for granted
The services can be direct or indirect. For example, green plants and sea plankton offer pure oxygen, which is a direct and obvious service. On the other hand, bumblebees are pollinating insects that help several crop plants to produce seeds, or they will not survive or give us food. Their services are subtle, so the decline of pollinating insects can be a concern.Imagine if there were no plants on the earth, humans would need to engineer a chemical processing plant to produce oxygen and even water. If there was nothing to eat, then produce artificial food, which will be hard to digest.Will you be able to create good microorganisms living in the gut artificially? Instead of, going through all the stress, it seems simple to allow the current wildlife to take care of it for us. The ecosystem services stretch is extraordinarily wide and gigantic when everything gets added.
Preserving wildlife is not ‘Nature for itself’, but can be morally regarded to be ‘Nature for people’ due to the concept of ecosystem services. Even if you don’t care for the wildlife it holds a strong value for the ecotourism sector. If you take a selective approach towards conservation like keeping things that attract tourists and leave the rest to go extinct. Nevertheless, for specific wildlife, there will be a need for a thick jungle full of trees, which cannot be ignored. It even means you will need to conserve other animals that will help to shape the plant community. For many people living near forests plan safari holidays and takes tourists to see the wildlife. These people benefit from the conservation of wildlife. Running tours pay better than farming. Ecotourism is a way, where nature compensates for itself.Keeps ecosystem stable and resilient
