Protecting Species Means Protecting Us.

Thousands of animals each day are ruthlessly killed by humans. Anywhere from mice and rats, to tigers and lions. Protecting species of Animalia also contributes to ourselves. Without orangutans, 7 different Asian tree species would go extinct. Without Mountain Gorillas, the biodiversity of forests would no longer spread. Without the Rhinoceros, many other different species would go extinct. And without species in general, the world would be a cold, empty space.
