Apparently, extinction of certain species in the world is not because of natural causes, but rather the doing of their co-creatures. Man tops the list for being the primary reason for the fast race towards nearing extinction of certain animals, most coming from hunting them and using them as signs of achievements and distinction. Whales, bears and crocodiles are the ones nearing extinction and most of them are the ones hunted by man on land or sea.
Such has garnered the attention of certain groups, calling for movements to save the remaining species from nearing extinction. The include No Eating of Animal Meat and No Kill Movements to help save the welfare of concerned animals.
It is evident that man has caused the problem and hence man is expected to solve the crisis at hand. But causing the problem is easier than solving it, as this is the reason why the movements have been formed. Widespread awareness for the impending extinction of these mammals is at hand and without the efforts of these foundations, it would only be a matter of time before other races and species follow their demise.
