• Yes, we should protect endangered species, because we ourselves are an endangered species.

    Humans became an endangered species with the invention of the nuclear bomb. Unfortunately, there is no real way of assuring that countries harboring weapons of mass destruction turn them over. The odds are in favor of nuclear "accidents" and other terrorist attacks. These actions could trigger a nuclear holocaust. Are we an endangered species? You bet your life we are. It is in our best interest to protect what remains of our current environment, and this includes other endangered species.

  • Of course we should!

    Just put yourself in their shoes, how would YOU feel if the animals ruled and we were the ones going endangered or extinct? (Of course impossible but think about it) we were put on this Earth to take care of it, not destroy it! We are God's creatures and so are the animals! Yes we all know we cannot save them all, but we can at least try. Whether it be the most resourceful, cute and cuddly, which ever. We need to think of this Earth as a whole and STOP being so damn selfish!

  • Save The Animals

    I want my children to be able to experience the same great wildlife that I have. I explore and travel the world and nothing is better to me than observing all the mystical wonders that God has put on this great earth. The great thing about animals is, they adapt and thrive to survive. They don't kill for more than what they need, they don't destroy the planet, they don't lie. They only know instincts, emotions, and survival. They don't start wars. They eat, they love, they play.


    I think we should help endangered animals before the get extinct. What if all our favorite animals become extinct? What if it turns out we are the only animals on earth? Do you know why humans will probably never get extinct? Because we have other animals to eat that are not endangered or extinct. If we didn't have those other animal to eat, we would be extinct by now.

  • Protect Endangered Species; it could save YOUR life. Yes, YOURS.

    If you let species that are endangered go extinct, you will majorly disrupt the circle of life, let alone the food chain. It can effect you, too. What if certain animals like sharks, cows, snakes, birds, etc. Went extinct? People would be out of food, jobs, and more. Why would you let some of the worlds' most beautiful creatures go extinct? Why?

  • Of course we will!

    Animals are often hunted for their meat, blubber(fat) and skin. This is an abuse from humans, which causes this problem. But that is not the issue. Hunting ENDANGERED animals must be illegal to all countries and stopped. It is known as a fact that endangered animals have been dropping, and some are already been extinct. We maybe can't save them all, but we can try. Animals are part of our lives and the environment. To support my argument, please donate at worldwildlife.Org/‎. Thank you.

  • Many animals provide knowledge that helps in science and biological sciences

    A loss of biodiversity can mean the loss of possible discovery of treatments for diseases or health problems. For example, a flower type called Rosy Periwinkle almost went extinct due to deforestation in Madagascar. The flower was later found to have a substance that fights and cures Leukemia and Hodgkin’s disease. It also helped increase the survival rate of Leukemia from 20% to 80%. If this flower had gone extinct, humans may have never discovered this and it would’ve had a very different effect in the medical field. A second example is the Gila monster’s saliva. It has been found that its saliva can help people with type-2 Diabetes. The Gila monsters’ habitat is currently being destroyed to build homes and roads. The Rosy Periwinkle and Gila monster are only a few of the many species that should be conserved due to their contribution to human research. If these species go extinct, humans lose possible medicine or research opportunities.

  • Hi cruel world

    We need the animals please save animals they wanted to live there beautiful live but people killed them if people let animals be extinict that will not make the world the same again just like the rest of use by the way stop cutting wood when ever you want to it is hurting animal homes we dont need that much wood this used to be an animals world but people kept coming and detroyed there homes we need love for animals please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • No protection for animals

    Why should we protect animals that cannot even protect themselves? It is a huge waste of time and money, especially since we have other things to spend money on, like inventing new ways of wasting our time. Personally, I don't believe that we should bother saving those damn animals that cannot even survive on their own. If it was up to me I would kill all animals so that we can rule this Earth alone.

  • Waste of time

    Survival of the fittest! If a creature cannot survive in a human ruled Earth, it is not fit to live and must adapt to us, not us adapt to them. If a creature is beneficial to our society it should be protected, but animals that do not contribute are not worth the time and money.

  • Let nature take its course

    If we continue to save endangered animals, then we stop any possibility of any other animal to take its place. If the dinosaurs were still around, would we be on this site, no. Extinction is part of the natural order of things, and we must not interfere with that order

  • It's unrealistic

    Although, we would all like to protect the endangered species from becoming extinct, it is only a natural process of evolution. Like Charles Darwin's principle "survival of the fittest", the "fittest" does not depend on whether the specie is strong, big, or cunning than those who are small and weak, but "the fittest" means those who are capable of passing on their genes to offsprings and so forth. Hence, trying to save species that can not survive in its environment is rather silly, because it is all part of evolution.

  • No.. Absolutely not

    Everything will eventually starve to death if we allow everything to live... Then w'ere REALLY monsters as humans... Look at Yellowstone... There are many examples of the negative consequences of over protection - we almost made certain trees extinct when we protected them from fire... Many examples.... Its a bad idea... Just let nature do its thing.

  • No Use to us

    We are wasting billions of dollars to protect animals that are no use to us.
    There are far more better places to spend that money. Unless it helps us in some way, there is no need to protect them. The only reason anybody wants to protect them is because they look 'cute' in some way and we have an urge to protect them.

  • Most endangered animals serve no purpose to human.

    Some people argue that we rely on animals. Thankfully, those animals are far from being endangered. In general, most endangered animals truly serve no purpose for humans. Hence, I question why we need to protect them when they are naturally dying by themselves.

    I do believe activities like poaching is wrong. However, animals that are naturally dying due to change in environment should not be protected. The environments are changing because we humans are trying to improve. Unless you want to put a stop to the progress of humanity, animals can never truly be successfully saved.

  • Mother Nature is doing her job.

    I don't mean to be the bad guy in this argument in this topic, but we keep forgetting that this is part of nature natural selection. The strong survive while the weak are left out. The world is a cruel thing but we need to face fact whether we like it or not. The world is changing for the better or worse we are at the top and all else is below us. I want to save endanger animal for future generation, but nature put us at the top for a reason. No fact just my opinion. Sorry if your mad at me, but i just want to speak my mind.

  • Stop Protecting Species

    If species are saved just cause we feel sorry for them then thats the exact mindset of a hoarder. We do not need to play hero to animals and satisfy our hoarding need. Let nature take its course, thats the way it was always meant to be. For example, its very stupid to save a certain species of frog just cause it has yellow spots on its body.

  • Should we pay for worthless animals?

    Why the hell should we pay for animals to be looked after when they cant even look after themselves?? We dont even need animals because they are a waste of space and a waste of peoples money. People who are prepared to 'adopt' or 'sponsor' an endangered animal must clearly be insane.

Endangered species should definitely be protected.
SweetTea says2014-03-12T20:23:03.217
Don't we, as humans, look for ways to protect our own species from endangerment? Think about it!
MrSir21 says2014-07-22T13:16:21.160
If the animals and plants die out, we as humans will lack sources of food and medicine. Who will be then be the endangered species now? Humans!

Two of you are right because they are very fascinating animals
