Nowadays everybody is talking about wildlife conservation. Many animals are in danger of extinction and must be saved: this is the plea of the conservationist.You may be wondering what is means when a particular animal belongs to an endangered species.The conservationist will draw your attention to two dangers that threaten the wildlife of the world.Let's look at each of them.

An animal may be said to be endangered when people begin to kill it indiscriminately. Elephants are killed for their ivory; alligators are killed for feathers. If such killing is not checked, these animals may become extinct.

There is an even more serious threat to animals. When people cut down the trees of the forest, the animal living their lose their home.Trees are cut for the fuel or for timber, and little by little the forest area diminishes.

Sometimes large area of forest are cleared to make way for a reservoir or a dam. The animals in the area are then pushed out of existence.

What does that matter, you may ask. We can do without many of these animals. The world will be safer without poisonous snakes and man-eating tigers.But if one animals species is removed from the earth, it is like removing one link from a chain. Wildlife is the vital part of our ecosystem. Nature maintains a delicate balance among the plants and animals of the world. If we go on killing species after species of animals, we will be removing thread after thread from the complex tapestry of life until finally nothing will be left of life on earth.
