Hunted, Pollution

Leatherback turtles


Leatherback turtles are protected by WFF, they put transmitter on their hard shell and send them off to observe them. These large turtles can lay a number of 80 eggs per time and bury it up. A estimated of 1 out of 1000 can come back to lay their eggs, many leatherbacks eggs are taken to do certain substances. Some of the turtles are being killed in ship accidents, but mostly they are being killed by pollution, their favourite food jellyfish, can be mistaken for a plastic bags.The plastic can kill them. Scientists from all around the globe are protesting for cleaner habitats, and put transmitters on and track them on their journey. These magnificent species of turtles are disappearing quickly, prevent people from killing them.

Opinion: Leatherback turtles are a specimens of turtles, these turtles are disappearing quickly. It is because the seas that they live in is polluted by rubbish, chemicals and human waste. The amount of turtles hatched is actually a lot, but there are also predators that eat them, loss of food……Eventually, the turtles will disappear from this world. We need to be considerate and clean up after our selves and take good care of nature.

Humpback Whales Killed for Delicacy


Humpback whales are killed for delicacy around the world, they are served in the most famous restaurants around the world. The rate and popullaton of  whales are going down quickly. Scientists and groups of people tried to stop people from poaching them down, but they don’t seem to care abut the number of whales and continue killing them. People from all around the globe are trying to stop them and protest against these situations, finally, states and nations started to ban killing whales. In 1996 people hunted whales to a population of only 10% left. Scientists tried to protect and continue breeding the species and prevent them from being extinct, but today the seas are full of ships. The honking of the ships confuse the humpback whale from communicating to each other, there are also accidents that kill them, loss of food, and hunting them.

Opinion: I think that we should stop killing them before it is to late, these majestic whales are very rare now a days. Our ancestors has been hunting them until this day, stand up against killing whales! We need to act fast and protect them, so one day the ocean will be filled with them again.

to grow. Humans cut down bamboo to do things, leaving little bamboo left for the giant pandas. Some people think they will have to face starvation one day. In 2004, people estimated that there was only 1,600 pandas left in the wild. WFF takes care of them and protest about killing giant pandas.

Opinion: These cute animals has been hunted until it is endangered, long time ago, the mainlands of china was filled with pandas. The ancient Chinese started eating their flesh, then now we take their fur for human accessory. Many hospitals have been built to raise newborn pandas, we don’t want these cute animals disappear.
