World Wildlife Day: Human life is directly related to wildlife

This time this theme of World Wildlife Day is considered very important.  This time the discussion will focus on the conservation of those species, which have the greatest contribution to ecological conservation.  For several decades in a row, the most neglected was wildlife.  We must have expressed concern on the conservation of tigers, lions and elephants broadly, because they appear to be extinct, but today such species of flora and other fauna are disappearing, which keep the ecosystem stable.  We do not know how many species have been lost by man since he took his dominion over the earth.  Roughly about 8,400 wildlife and flora-species are threatened by us and it is believed that the existence of about 30,000 species has been raised in great questions.  Earlier it has also been believed that if this continues, then we will push about one million species towards extinction in the coming time.  We have certainly discussed extinct species, but perhaps if we had data about the adverse effects of these species, whether wildlife or plant species, their extinction would be more serious.  The overall health of any ecosystem is probably also directly related to human life, because if deteriorating winds can directly attack our respiratory system, it is somehow linked to the climate.  Be it pure water or all the issues and questions related to our food, they also have a direct relationship with the ecosystem.
The earth has woven the entire ecosystem through a fabric of 46 million years of labor, in which every small life or non-living element has a fine relationship with each other.  They have interdependence and this is the reason that if this dependency is broken for any reason, then there is upheaval in the ecosystem.  Now the reason for the loss of biodiversity is humans themselves.  According to the IUCN report, 121 plant species and 735 animal species have come in the ‘Red List’.  One-third of the species are in the threatened category, of which 41 percent are amphibians, 25 percent mammals and 13.30 percent bird species.  These are data after the study of 63,838 species, which is only four percent of the total species available in the earth, meaning 96 percent of the species have not even been studied.  The understanding of nature, science and systems is negligible in all our education, because if it were part of education from the early stages, then perhaps we would have increased the understanding of our ecosystem and the same would be reflected in our development policies.
For some time now, if we also look at the rate at which we have lost forests every year, then perhaps we will understand some seriousness.  The figure is in front.  Every year we lose 1090 million hectares of forest around the world.  Also understand that Amazon, which is called the lungs of the world, loses forest equal to a football field every minute.  Today we should also know that 400 dark zones have already formed in the ocean, which means that life in these areas has become zero.
We have set up sanctuaries around the world to protect wildlife, but these sanctuaries have become victims of ambushes.  This does not merely raise questions of mismanagement, but points to the more important collective participation, which is nil.  Look in your own country.  The death toll of a tiger every two days has come only recently.  Still we have not been able to seriously understand that life in our education, which in one way or the other contributes a lot to our economy, food and our other needs, which are directly related to human life.  Until such a great understanding is not made, we will continue to celebrate such days every year to show off.
