about this story

Pic #1: (Introduction) There’s no denying that the world is a beautiful place when looking at the brighter side of it. When focusing on these brighter parts of the world, it always seemed like wildlife was one of the most intriguing parts of it. Take the gorilla for example, Gorillas typically live in the lowland tropical rainforests of Central Africa in packs of 5 to 10 usually. They have a very tight knit group of trusted gorillas, and they can live in other types of habitats like, dense old-growth forests, areas along the edges of forests with high concentrations of low vegetation, mountain and sub-mountain forests, swamp forests and savannah forests. Without their beloved habitats gorillas would be at risk of becoming endangered.

Pic #2: Tigers are renowned around the world for their undeniable beauty, grace and form. These beautiful cats can live in a range of environments, including the Siberian taiga, swamps, grasslands, and rainforests. They can be found anywhere from the Russian Far East to parts of North Korea, China, India, and Southwest Asia to the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Tigers also heavily rely on their habitats as well. Their habitats are very vital to their survival.

Pic #3: Unlike gorillas and tigers, snakes slither their way through all different types of habitats. Some include forests, swamps, grasslands, deserts and in both fresh and saltwater. Some are active at night, others during the day. Snakes are predators and eat a wide variety of animals, including rodents, insects, birds' eggs and young birds. Without the proper habitat snakes do not have the ability to do any of this.

Pic #4 (Counterargument) However, as we engorge ourselves into these beautiful habits and animals, it unfortunately comes with destruction. The primary individual cause of loss of habitat is because of the clearing of land for agriculture. The loss of wetlands, plains, lakes, and other natural environments all destroy or degrade habitat, as do other human activities such as introducing invasive species, polluting, trading in wildlife, and engaging in wars. In fact 93% of historical tiger lands have disappeared primarily because of expanding human activity. At these rates animals like the gorilla, tiger, and certain breeds of snakes will soon become extinct.

Pic #5: Therefore, we need to protect our wildlife as much as humanly possible or we will lose such beloved animals, as agriculture could take over.
