This post is a more serious one, I don't like doing serious one's but most of the time the things I write about need to be noticed, as not many people are doing much about the topics! Today I'm doing animal safety:
|This is a hedgehog that we rescued!|
The situation is no better around the word, though take a look at some of the endangered species from all over the globe!
The Red Panda, less then 10,000 individuals. Poached and caught in traps for their fur, often used as hats in Bhutan.
The Black Rhino, <5,000. A critically endangered animal, between 1970 and 1992, 96% of black rhinos were killed for their horn or just for amusement, it's horrible... it really is. In 2014, 1,215 rhinos where poached in South Africa - a 21% increase from the year before.
This is only a few of the many of the endangered animals around the world. Every day, scientists estimate that 150-200 species of Animal, Plant and insect go extinct. Do you want one of those to be your favourite animal?
