Disease in Jersey's squirrels causes concern BY KAIYI

By Kai Yi Summary: Researchers have found a disease in Jersey’s red squirrels which can cause a decline in their population. Researchers believed this disease could be caused by bad diet, or the development of the island resulting in the loss of the squirrel’s habitats.
Opinion: The root cause of the disease is partly due to human activities. If this situation prolongs, the squirrels may become an endangered species. Not only just the squirrels but many other populations of animals haVE been declining and the main cause of it is because of human activities, such as deforestation, burning of fossil fuels and preying animals for their skin, meat, tusks, etc. Thereby, I feel that we humans should save the animals and the Earth by doing simple acts in our daily life such as conserving resources and living in a green lifestyle. The simple acts of recycling bottles and using public transportation can decrease the need to destroy habitats for additional natural resources.
