We Need To Protect Endangered Animals

   The issue of Endangered Animals is important because Healthy ecosystems depend on animal species as their foundations and ‘’The American tourism industry is dependent on plant and animal species and their ecosystems for their multi-billion dollar, job-intensive industry’’(Endangered Species Coalition). This issue is debatable because while some believe that once the animals that are endangered go extinct will affect the human population negatively, others believe that it does not matter at all if endangered animals die off for good.,My opinion on the issue is that endangered animals are indeed worth saving and protecting.I strongly believe this because when we protect endangered animals, we also protect our ecosystems that underlie our economies and welfare.

‘‘It is important to realize that endangered animals have many of the same feelings we do and share the same neural structures that are important in processing emotions. Animals experience contagious joy and the deepest of grief, they get hurt and suffer, and they take care of one another. They have a point of view on what happens to them, their families, and their friends. Nonetheless, endangered animal lives are not protected in deference to human interests’’(Marc Bekoff Ph.D.). Experts who have studied this issue have found that the ‘‘key to the survival of our endangered species is ensuring that they are reintroduced to protected areas where they can safely roam and strengthen in number. And to monitor the animals on a daily basis to assess how the animals are doing’’(Wildlife ACT).

Many experts have weighed in on the subject including Jan Vertefeuille (Senior Director, Advocacy, Wildlife Conservation), who said “When poaching of elephants and rhinos hit crisis levels in Africa a few years ago, we needed to get the issue in front of world leaders who could mobilize resources to tackle the crisis. By reframing the issue to one of global security and organized crime, we took an issue that had been relegated to underfunded and poorly equipped park rangers and put it on the agenda of the UN and the White House.” This quote connects to the fact that when animals who were continually hunted to the point of becoming endangered needed protection. One way to get help for them is to do what Jan Vertefeuille did and make the UN and the White House aware of the problem.

A further example that endangered animals are indeed worth saving and protecting is that Healthy ecosystems rely upon plant and animal species as their support. When a species becomes endangered, it is a clear indicator that the ecosystem is slowly breaking apart. Each species that is lost, triggers the loss of another within its ecosystem.‘‘We as Humans depend on healthy ecosystems to purify our environment, without healthy forests, grasslands, rivers, oceans and other ecosystems, we will not have clean air, water, or land. If we allow our environment to become contaminated, we risk our own health.’’(Endangered Species Coalition)

Some people believe that we don’t need to protect endangered animals because the ‘‘impulse to conserve for conservation’s sake has taken on an unthinking, unsupported, unnecessary urgency. Extinction is the engine of evolution, the mechanism by which natural selection prunes the poorly adapted and allows the hardiest to flourish. Species constantly go extinct, and every species that is alive today will one day follow suit. There is no such thing as an ‘endangered species,’ except for all species.’’(R. Alexander Pyron) This is faulty reasoning because in order for our ecosystems to stay healthy, it needs to continue to rely upon plant and animal species as their support.

Another common reason people believe that we don’t need to save endangered species is because ‘‘the impulse to conserve for conservation’s sake has taken on an unthinking, unsupported, unnecessary urgency. Extinction is the engine of evolution, the mechanism by which natural selection prunes the poorly adapted and allows the hardiest to flourish. Species constantly go extinct, and every species that is alive today will one day follow suit’’ (R. Alexander Pyron). In this case, they are wrong because they are not considering that we base our cities, towns, urban, suburban and rural communities on foundations that involve and and require a multitude of diverse animals to help balance the phenomena of the physical world collectively, known as nature itself .

The reasons to believe that we don’t need to protect endangered animals have been discounted again and again by Professors of Biology ,Wildlife Rehabilitators, Animal Welfare Advocates, Zoologists, and Conservation Scientists. In my opinion, The evidence in support of that endangered animals are indeed worth saving and protecting is stronger than the refutations of naysayers. 

My View Of The Definition Of Success

In today’s world, society has influenced the minds of people into thinking that success is built upon money and valuable possessions. Now, let’s stop and think for a second. Do we even know what the true definition of success is? No, we don’t. Nowadays, Society sets out types of norms and brainwashes us into thinking that we need to follow them. Most people around the world believe it’s essential what others have to say rather than just doing things for themselves and not caring what they think. Individuals should follow their meanings of success and not let others interfere. Success does not settle down at one definition. Every person has their perspective, beliefs, and goals to become successful in their original ways.

On September 17, 2018, we were given a quote in class that stated, “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best you are capable of becoming” by John Wooden. Our assignment was to paraphrase what this quote means to us. What this meant to me was that my journeys would come with many failures, but it doesn’t mean that I should give up on myself so easily. There will be times where I may struggle but it is all about resilience. The ability to bounce back up, and once knowing that I did my absolute best to succeed and finally accomplish my goal with hard work would pay off. The fact of achieving the goals that I set for myself would help me feel extraordinarily proud and can help unwind my mentality by becoming stress-free.

In Jamie Anderson’s Ted talk, he explains what success means to him. He argues that success is what each person makes of it. There isn’t just one model for the way success can be achieved, it can come in different ways. When he was a kid he dreamed of racing in Europe as a professional cyclist, but as he got older his teachers and friends started telling him that he needed to be more realistic because he was academically smart. After time he chooses to go into business and attended Melbourne University and became a business school professor. As timed passed Jamie was very busy and didn’t have any time to spend with his wife and 3 children. He started to become unhealthy and unhappy. Jaime was not doing something that he loved to do and wasn’t spending any time with his family. He then realized that he wasn’t happy with what he was doing and that he didn’t consider it as a success. What he considered success was being with his family and racing in Europe. Jamie’s journey with success supports my beliefs of success because the only way to be successful is by accomplishing or doing something that you truly love and not things that other people want or expect from you.

Three qualities that I believe can help obtain success are optimism, hard work, and family. A person I consider successful and acquires these three qualities is my uncle, Mario Mendez. Not only is he a successful person, but someone I honestly look up to and acknowledge. My uncle is one of the few people I know that are optimistic. He always keeps a positive mindset when he is feeling down or when problems in his daily life occur. He never lets anything get in his way and when he does he doesn’t give up and finds a solution to solve the problem. I know that he is a very hard worker along with many other people around the world. He manages a fast food restaurant that is very common called Carl’s Jr. Managing any business is difficult, but my uncle puts in backbreaking work by keeping everything running smoothly. He works hard to be able to provide for himself and family. A family is one of the significant things my uncle cares most about. Without his families support, he wouldn’t be where he is right now. He is entirely grateful for all the things he has accomplished and for what he has earned to get this far. He enjoys doing things he loves and does not regret any of it. He loves helping others, plays on a volleyball team and enjoys parties with his family. When I questioned him what success meant to him he answered, ”Success means to follow my goals and dreams without letting anybody get in my way from achieving it and most importantly if it is something I love doing.”

An example of success where money and valuable belongings take place is stated in the book, The Great Gatsby. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote it in the year of 1925. In his novel, demonstrates various symbols that have valuable meanings. For example, money and the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock play a massive role amongst Gatsby’s life. Gatsby is full of riches and luxurious items that you can ever think of. He lives in a huge mansion where he throws enormous parties that can light up a whole city. His purpose of these parties was to attract one specific girl who he had fallen deeply in love with, her name was Daisy. After plenty of parties, Gatsby always hoped for Daisy to show up. Until one night Daisy attended one of his parties and was not impressed. As you see Daisy did not love the way Gatsby lived. She was already married to a man named Tom Buchanan and was accustomed to his lifestyle. Gatsby tried to convince Daisy into leaving Tom for him. He offered her what he had which was money and anything she asked for, but she denied. One night Gatsby went onto his dock and saw Daisy’s green light flashing which represents his hopes and dreams for his future. As time passed the green light faded away little by little. Gatsby was devastated because it meant that his future was not what he expected it to be. He had dreamed of having Daisy by his side and accomplishing The American Dream.
