We all know that there are many endangered species throughout the world. The word ‘endangered’ means that these species are at a high
risk of becoming extinct if no steps are taken to protect to protect and restore their habitats. A number of these species are at a risk of
extinction and are being threatened by industrialization, overhunting, or reckless population management practices. Most of these species get
killed due to the fur or oil they produce or as a food source.
The following is a things that you and your loved ones can do in order to help protect endangered species. and hopefully we can save these species from getting extinct.
1.This is the first step in making yourself aware and sharing that awareness with others. In most places, there will be species that
2.If you know what species are endangered, you can let everyone around you know so that they are able to act in a way that will not
put these animals’ lives in danger.
3.Simply recycling and buying eco-friendly products can go a long way to help our animal friends. Do not purchase anything that is made of wood that comes
from rainforests, and know the consequences of every product you buy.
4.You might be surprised about what products cause harm to the environments of endangered species, so do your research and know what kind of impact
you are having.
5.Much of what threatens local populations has to do with development and more and more of the natural world is plundered to product new goods.
Never buy furniture made of wood from rainforests or endangered trees. Recycle your cell phones, because a mineral used in electronic production is
mined in gorilla habitat
6.Don’t use palm oil because forests where tigers live are being cut down to plant palm plantations.
7.Buy recycled paper and sustainable products like Forest Stewardship Council wood products and shade-grown coffee to save rainforests.
8.You should make an effort to recycle products like cans, cardboards, and plastics. You should also try to switch over to reusable products. Go for cloth
napkins over paper ones, for example, and do not buy products made from materials that are not biodegradable.
9.Recycling has the potential to reduce the production and consumption of natural resources. If everyone conscientiously recycles and only uses
sustainable sources, this would greatly reduce the pressure on eco-systems. You may think that your small contribution to recycling makes little difference.
It can and it will but it requires that everyone play their part.
10.As a college student, it can be harder to buy sustainable products since they are generally more expensive than those that are mass produced. However,
there are still small steps you can take to help endangered species across the globe.
For example, recycle your cell phone, even if it’s broken. Coltan, a reusable mineral in cell phones, is mined from gorilla habitats, and by recycling old
phones, you reduce the need to further deplete these rainforests.
Try to reduce your usage of palm oil—in products like shampoo, lip balm, and makeup—since its extraction is also detrimental to plants and animals in
Malaysia and Indonesia. Recycle cardboard, soda cans, and paper.
Try to take your notes electronically instead of writing them in notebooks (additional perk: this means less stuff to carry across campus).
11.Reduce your carbon footprint, energy use, and use natural resources- by buying and consuming less and reusing and recycling more
