Presently, most of the species that are endangered such as the Black Rhino and the South China Tiger can blame the humans for their situation (World Wildlife Fund). This is because climate change, which has been affecting most species, was caused by humans.
Currently, the planet is at the stage of mass extinction where many species are dying off. According to scientists, the planet is currently losing the largest number of species since the time of the dinosaurs, which is 65 years ago. In addition, between 30 and 50 species might become extinct by mid-century (The Extinction Crisis). When taking the issue of extinction into consideration, the dying-off of one species leads to other species also becoming extinct. This is because of the ecosystem balance, which changes when a certain species is wiped out of the system as species depend on each other for survival. Therefore, extinction of one species leads to another’s extinction. Generally, when a species cannot survive in its original inhabitant and cannot re-locate or adapt in the conditions of a new environment, it dies off. According to statistical data, the average lifespan of a species is approximately 10 million years (The Extinction Crisis). Extinction may occur suddenly especially when another species that facilitated its existence becomes extinct or gradually over a long period. This can be referred to as the extinction debt where a species becomes extinct a very long time after an event that put its extinction process in motion.
Within the previous 500 years, extinction of approximately 1,000 species has been experienced (The Extinction Crisis). However, this this does not account for the many species that have gone extinct even before scientists and researchers got the chance to fully understand and describe them. Specifically, not even the scientists have the exact figure of species that have gone extinct or those that are endangered. As estimation data

At the same time it makes them feel that what they have done so far with the natural system was wrong and unethical. These unethical acts are basically helping them to know what they should do and what they should not. And the word “extinction” is the major reason for this kind of consciousness.
The American eel, or Anguilla rostrata, is found mainly on the eastern coast of North America. It has a snake like body with a head almost similar to that of a snake. Only its tail give it an appearance of a fish. In other words, it is difficult to segregate it from snakes. It is brownish in color at the top and yellowish at bottom.
A study by Michael focused on a range of theories that sought to expand the understanding and points of linkages between the theories and the many schools of thought that attempt to explore the depths of this historical phenomenon. The meteorite theory and the scientific theory remain some of the two most compelling explanations.
There have been several conservation movements in the contemporary world which, according to Samuel P. Hays, have contributed to the political drama of the twentieth century and the events of the movement, cast in the framework of a moral struggle between the virtuous 'people' and the evil 'interests', expresses the crusading quality of the conservation movement.
These costs are not only subject to the mankind rather the entire living beings which include the birds and animals equally. They also come in form of the threat to the natural balance of the environment and the
This study is centered towards analyzing various aspects of animal cruelty. "Animal cruelty" has been chosen as the research issue since it is associated with other forms of crimes occurring across the globe. In every country, animals are striving to live and prevent themselves from any form of harm.
According to the report animals are used the world over by scientists in their efforts at developing new medicines and testing both efficacy and safety of their medicines. In majority of the experiments, animals have to suffer excruciating pains while at the same time their quality of life is significantly affected in the negative.
