Some people think that human needs for farmland, housing, and industry are more important than saving land for endangered animals. Do you agree or disagree with this point of view? Why or why not? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer
A few individuals prefer human needs for agricultural land, residential areas, and industry over saving land for endangered animals. I completely disagree with the aforesaid notion as conservation of endangered species is equally important to maintain the ecological balance on our planet. Firstly, animals play an important role in maintaining balance in the food cycle. The food chain is one of the important processes for human survival. For example, herbivores eat plants, grass, and trees but carnivores attack and eat herbivores which results in a balance in the food cycle and sufficient edible is available to sustain human life. However; human classifies under the category of omnivores who consumes both plant and animal and both plant and animal are necessary for human survival. Secondly, some fauna protects human beings from deadly diseases by consuming insects and infectious microbial species. For example, a few endangered species of birds eat insects like mosquitoes, flies, and bugs which contain deadly viruses and protozoans; these microbes are responsible for causing human diseases like malaria, typhoid, covid, chikungunya, AIDS, flu, filariasis, and many more. To conclude, for human life existence, saving forest lands could be prioritized to conserve the various endangered fauna and flora which are on the verge of extinction.
