The scariest situation in the wildlife is happening. Mother nature has played chase and catch with us – running from the threat of extinction – precisely not us humankind, but other species – our beloved wild animals. From almost decade the ignorance and insensitivity of ours of other non-human creatures resulted great damage to wildlife. Our ego neglected the interest of other living things, and now when everything start falling under the bridge – everyone is furious. Even the several most popular animal cities in the world; Amazon, South Africa, Iceland, etc – couldn’t stop the nature catastrophe.
The inability of animals to survive in their own nature was affected by human intervention. Most distractions that occurred in the nature was human caused. The pollution, plastic inside the oceans, illegal logging, hunting, etc; caused so many losses to wild nature. Do we willing to watch every species enter the list of extinct animal? Absolutely no. There is still hope to save these animals, there is still hope for humankind to change their habitual, there is a hoped to save them from the climate changes (global warming); there are chances for all of us.
From included in the lists of WWF (World Wildlife Fund), some of the species had been threatened to the extinction: African elephants, Asian elephants, Bengal tiger, Polar bear in the Arctic, Amur leopard, Brown bear, Chimpanzee, Giant panda, Green sea turtle, Blue whale, North Atlantic right whale, Sumatran orangutan, Galapos penguin, South Asian river dolphin, and other long list of names. So, what can we do to help stop this issues? However, there are 4 steps we need to save animals before they extinct.
Rescuing animals, build up the new conservation, food, these are examples of budgetary to think about if we talking about saving lives of animals. It’s not come for free. All the wildlife funds organizations need money to process the instruction procedures. Money is one of the most important fuel for their accommodation, just like other thing, I presume. So, if you busy and didn’t have time to help them directly into the fields, so why not give monetary support to the wildlife funds? Every cent is important for these organizations. Just give the donation which accordance to your capacity with all the good attention, then everything is worth it.
There are some famous organizations that open donations for public, such as WWF (World Wildlife Fund), Associations of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA); also some of other non-profit organizations which accept the help of donation from everyone. All you need to do is look them up in internet – for good reasons, perhaps it’s way better if you pick non-profit organizations rather than the one which with profit. Furthermore, start to give the information about your credit card, so they could process the fund for the animal’s interest.
Ordinarily, you would be serve with two options: first is one time donation, and the second one is monthly donation. It’s all up to you which one you want to choose, one thing you need to know that everything must come up from the bottom of your heart. If you choose to give support via WWF, there’s an option of “adoption kits” which is allowed to to pick one species to protect and will flow the fund that you’ve given to the species. If you choose to give it in general (for every animal), then you should not go with “not to receive a gift”.
