Animals Getting Extinct

As the human population grows and the countries continue to consume resources at a fast pace, we are pushing animals towards getting extinct. From white giraffe to pygmy elephant, animals are getting extinct. That’s all because of we Humans. Now you must be wondering how? It’s by the way we are destroying forests where these animals live which we know as ‘deforestation’ and by killing them to make leather products and sell them in the market.

Let’s discover which animals are getting extinct in this article because of our carelessness.

Now only one male giraffe is left in the world, it’s because of the poachers

This is so disheartening, poachers are killing white female giraffes and her calf. And, now only one male giraffe has been left in the world. It was recently found that the bodies of only white female giraffe and her calf were found in a skeletal state after being killed by armed poachers in Garissa in eastern Kenya, the Ishaqbini Hirola Community Conservancy said in a statement. Their death has left only one make in the entire world.

You will be shocked to see such a disturbing video where an endangered Manatee has been tied up and dragged along the road. In the video, the Manatee could be seen he is trying to escape. The number of men could be seen dragging him along the road. Do you know why they are hunted? They are hunted in Nigeria for their meat and oil. Their organs are reportedly used for traditional medicine.

Sumatran elephant found decollated with tusks ripped off

Another story which happened in November, the copse of a 40-year-old male elephant was found on an Indonesian plantation. Poachers cut off its head and trunk for its tusks. Sumatran elephants are an endangered species with less than 2,000 of them left in the wild.

So, these were some of the sad stories about the endangered species which are mercilessly killed for their meat and tusks for utilizing for human purposes such as making medicines or oils. This is because of our behaviour, these animals are getting extinct. If we want them to survive, we have to stop this act of cruelty to save them.

Los Angeles Zoo Welcomes Baby Gorilla Girl

Just like new mothers, the Los Angeles Zoo is excited to show off photos of their new baby. The California zoo’s gorilla parents, 32-year-old dad Kelly and first-time mother have welcomed their first baby and that too a girl on January 18, 2020. The newly born baby girl is super cute and it will make you go Aww if you watch her pictures. The most surprising thing to know is that it is the first gorilla baby that was born in the LA Zoo in over 20 years.

The zoo has announced that keepers recently confirmed that the new arrival is a baby girl. It took keepers several weeks to confirm the baby’s sex because the little girl is very attached to mom and she keeps sticking to his mom all the time. Baby girl’s name is N’djia, the adorable mom and baby girl pictures that could be seen cuddling together.

Beth Schaefer, director of animal programs at LA Zoo said in the release

“The last few weeks have been so exciting watching first-time mom N’djia with her new baby. Having gorillas in our zoo is so important so we can connect Angelinos to the amazing biodiversity that exists on this planet and to help ensure that these beings will never go extinct. Like with humans, each mom and baby are different, so some are adventurous and test boundaries earlier, while others stay close for a longer amount of time. We hope guests are enjoying this journey as much as we are”.

3 Aspects To Think About Before Adding A Pet To Your Family

Adding A Pet To Your Family

Having a new companion to shower with love and affection is great, but it comes at a cost. Not only do pets have an impact on your bank account, but they also require you to be responsible and deliver a high standard of care.

Think about what it takes to look after a pet and whether you can make that commitment.

1. Time

Time

Some pets will take up more of your time than others. Dogs, for example, like to be shown attention and need to be taken out for walks at least once a day. If you are considering getting a puppy, then you must remember that you will need to train it. This can be a frustrating task as it requires you to be patient. If it is proving too difficult to train your dog on your own, you will need to think about getting the help of a professional dog trainer.

If you are considering a more extravagant pet, such as a horse, you will need to dedicate a lot of time to it. Grooming, cleaning out stables, and exercise are just a few of the time-consuming tasks such a large animal needs from its owner. If it isn’t time spent training or exercising your animal, there is time spent taking it to vet appointments for check-ups or when your pet is sick.

2. Cost

visits to the animal doctor

Speaking of vets, those visits to the animal doctor can end up costing you a lot of money. Medicinal or physical treatments for your pet do not come cheap; therefore, you need to think about your financial situation before you get one. Pet insurance can be helpful for these bills, so make sure that is in place if you do get one.

Although insurance is another expense to add to the list. It is also worth noting that some vets, like heartandpaw.com, offer other services as well.  These will still cost you but having all these things in one place might be easier. Feeding your pet is, which might require several feedings, is another expense.

Then there is also the need for a bed for your pet to sleep in or a tank for it to live in. Then there are extra items such as toys, leads, collars, and so forth. Of course, prices for these things will vary, some brands are much more affordable than others. Nonetheless, they are all additional expenses to you when you become a pet owner.

3. Space

larger animal such as a dog

It doesn’t matter if you’re getting a larger animal such as a dog or a little goldfish. You will need enough room so that you and your pet can share the living space comfortably. Whether that means enough room for a dog or cat bed, or the space to set up a fish-tank. It’s not fair to expect a pet to live in a cramped, claustrophobic space – especially if they are animals who like to roam.

These are just three things to think about before getting a pet. Always do some research first before committing to such a big responsibility.
