Elephants, Poaching

African Elephant Killed for Tusks

African elephants are hunted for their expensive tusks, people in the past started hunting elephants to make them in to ivory objects. People protested against this idea and put it to a stop, but people today still sneak around and hunt them. They can fetch a very high price in the market, people patrol the savannah to stop people from killing them. These species of animal’s population are dropping quickly, baby elephant’s parents are poached and killed, it also needs to rely on its mother when it is in a small age. People from corners of the world persuade people to stop buying these ivory objects, people take care of them when they are small and release them back to the wild when they’re adults. We need to stand up, and stop killing elephants. These animals are soon extinct, some species are also incredibly rare too!

Opinion: In my opinion African Elephants are majestic animals and should not be killed for human advantages, we should stand up and stop the world from killing these animals. The disappearance of elephants would make the world change, and affect the food chain.

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.
