Life began on our planet about 3,500 million years ago. The first living things were found in the sea, and over the course of millions of years, from these early life forms, a rich variety of animals has descended. Through the process we call evolution, animals have become adapted to enable them to live in all parts of the world, sometimes in the most hostile environments.
But now a days, lots of animals species are in danger of extintion because of enviromental causes or human action.

Governments sometimes see the loss of native species as a loss to ecotourism, and can enact laws with severe punishment against the trade in native species in an effort to prevent extinction in the wild. Nature preserves are created by governments as a means to provide continuing habitats to species crowded by human expansion. The 1992 Convention on Biological Diversity has resulted in international Biodiversity Action Plan programmes, which attempt to provide comprehensive guidelines for government biodiversity conservation. Advocacy groups, such as The Wildlands Project[ and the Alliance for Zero Extinctions,work to educate the public and pressure governments into action.

People who live close to nature can be dependent on the survival of all the species in their environment, leaving them highly exposed to extinction risks. However, people prioritize day-to-day survival over species conservation; with human overpopulation in tropical developing countries, there has been enormous pressure on forests due to subsistenceagriculture, including slash-and-burn agricultural techniques that can reduce endangered species's habitats.
A number of organizations, such as the Worldwide Fund for Nature, have been created with the goal of preserving species from extinction. Governments have attempted, through enacting laws, to avoid habitat destruction, agricultural over-harvesting, and pollution. While many human-caused extinctions have been accidental, humans have also engaged in the deliberate destruction of some species, such as dangerous viruses, and the total destruction of other problematic species has been suggested. Other species were deliberately driven to extinction, or nearly so, due to poaching or because they were "undesirable", or to push for other human agendas. One example was the near extinction of the Americanbison, which was nearly wiped out by mass hunts sanctioned by the United States government, in order to force the removal of Native Americans, many of whom relied on the bison for food.

The Main problem Habitat

There is a serious habitat problem because :
  • After pollution or destruction, habitats take many years (sometimes hundreds or even thousands) to grow again.
  • Pollution and destruction change the balance of nature. Each species in a habitat (for example, wood, jungle, marsh or forest) needs and helps the rest. If one animal, bird or insect disappears, all the others suffer, too.
This is what's happening in the rainforests of South America, Africa and Asia. These are some of the world's oldest habitats. Or they were. Man is destroying an area of rainforest as big as Switzerland every year.
But the problem doesn't stop there. Habitats and animals are disappearing in Europe, too. Since 1947 in Britain, for example...
  • 50% oft he woods have disappeared.
  • 50% of the marshes have disappeared.
  • 95% of the meadows have disappeared.

The Hunting Problem

Man has always been a hunter. He still is. But many modern hunters don't just kill for food - they kill for profit. That's why so many rare and protected animals are still dying. Hunters like these are called poachers. In 1981 there were 15,000 black rhinos in Africa. Today, because of illegal hunting, that number is 4,500.
In the 1970s there were 1.3 million African elephants. Today, because of poaching, there are under 85,000.In the I940s, 90% of skins and furs came from wild animals. Today that number is 15%. That's because most modern skins come from fur farms.

Would you make a public awareness campaign to take care of animals?
I would, in facte Im preety sure that almost everybody would add to causses like this one
Are you for or against the killing of animals to make clothes?
I`m against , because nowadays there are lots of alternatives like wood or plastic
What are the consequences for animals when we wear clothes with their fur?
to wear animals fur, its necesary to kill them first , and it could make some animals to be in risk of extintion
Would you kill animals for their fur?
No, beacuase I like animals and I think its not good kill animals
Did you know that lips sticks are made with fish fins?
Why do people wear fur?
Because they think is cute and they belive it is beautifull
How many animals people kill to make one fur? Why did they take animal's fur until they kill them?
Millions of wild animals, including bobcats, coyotes, foxes, lynx, raccoons, and wolves, suffer and die in traps each year. Countless dogs and cats, deer, birds and other animals.
Which organizations campaign to fight for animals’ rights?

APAC (Asociacion Protectora de Animales Callejeros) - APEMA(Asociacion Para Erradicar el Maltrato Animal)
