Threats to Earth: Over-poaching. Done by JunTian

Summary: In recent years, there have been a sharp increase in the amount of illegal wild life trade. This threatens the existence of countless species of animals and even plants. Rhino horn, elephant ivory and tiger products continue to command high prices among consumers, especially in Asia. The increase in demand resulted in an increase in the number of poaching. Laws to protect wildlife trade are also not taken seriously by many governments, resulting in smugglers being able to carry out trade easily. Because of this increase in poaching, an imbalance in the nature system can be seen. Many animals are also decreasing in number, and some might even go extinct. Fortunately, there are still organizations like the WWF that are fighting to stop such crimes! Educating the public can teach the public why we should stop buying animal parts.

Opinion: I feel that the problem of over poaching is getting out of hand. We should not be so greedy and only think about ourselves. These animals are at the brink of becoming extinct. if nothing is done. the consequences are unbearable. I sincerely hope that all poachers can stop their outrageous act, and that consumers can see that if they do not stop, they are just ruining the balance of nature. Governments should also enforce stricter laws to ensure that the problem can be solved.
