Exporting Endangered Species
I am an animal lover, a Filipino citizen who lives in a country with such great biodiversity. The Philippines, where we live with honor and pride. Is it honor if we are not caring on our environment? What pride we are saying if we did not help on protecting of all these endemic and must treasured species?
God created human with it's meaningful and important purpose. And that is to be the superiors, who will be taking care of all these things neither living or non-living. I had read a lot of articles about exporting of endangered species especially in the Philippines, as I watched this kind of scenario I felt so bad and an idea of something wrong is happening comes out of my mind. My heart breaks after seeing those animals crying and howling to get out of that cage. It is a simple-looking issue compare to some seasonal issues today. But if we let this issue happen continuously, it might be more complicated than what we think. At most this just endangered species will soon be extinct!
The Endangered Species Act (ESA) makes it unlawful to import or export; deliver, receive, carry, transport, or ship in interstate or foreign commerce in the course of a commercial activity; sell or offer for sale in interstate or foreign commerce; take (includes harm, harass, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect any wildlife within the United States); take on the high seas; possess, ship, deliver, carry, transport, sell, or receive unlawfully taken wildlife; remove and reduce to possession any plant from areas under federal jurisdiction; maliciously damage or destroy an endangered plant on areas under federal jurisdiction; and remove, cut, dig up, or damage or destroy any endangered plant in knowing violation of any state law or regulation or in the course of a violation of a state criminal trespass law.* These prohibitions apply to live or dead animals or plants, their progeny (seeds in the case of plants), and parts or products derived from them.
Some activities that might otherwise be prohibited are exempt. Other activities are allowed in accordance with permit provisions.
10 Easy things you can do to save endangered species:
1.Learn about endangered species in your area.
2. Visit a national wildlife refuge, park or other open space .
3. Make your home wildlife friendly.
4. Native plants provide food and shelter for native wildlife.
5. Herbicides and pesticides may keep yards looking nice but they are in fact hazardous pollutants that affect wildlife at many levels.
6. Slow down when driving.
7. Recycle and buy sustainable products.
8. Never purchase products made from threatened or endangered species.
9. Harassing wildlife is cruel and illegal.
10. Protect wildlife habitat.
By protecting habitat, entire communities of animals and plants can be protected together. Parks, wildlife refuges, and other open space should be protected near your community. Open space also provides us with great places to visit and enjoy. Support wildlife habitat and open space protection in your community. When you are buying a house, consider your impact on wildlife habitat.
To all nature and animal lovers, help me to spread this petition for us to lessen or soon to stop exporting of endagered species.
