Wildlife is a Part of the Whole
When a bio-organism, which serves a certain purpose, is removed with regard to its feeding patterns or way of life, other bio-organisms will become either excessive or fewer to create a balance. Each serves a purpose in the whole, so if they are too rife, then we have to step in and consider culling or exterminating. If the bio-organism becomes extinct it no longer serves its purpose in the ecosystem. As the environment is tampered with, humanity has to take a more active stance in balancing the equation. Where nature balanced itself for thousands of years, we now have to balance the equations which were once intrinsically balanced by nature itself.
You see nature is in harmony, every variable influences the whole. We have unbalanced the equation and this has led to wildlife that not only is majestic to observe in the wild but can only be found in Game Reserves. Already the world has restricted wildlife to specific areas designated for conservationism. It is only a matter of time before we lose one of the wonders of the world through ignorance and lack of foresight. We have to start looking at conservationism as a reality that needs to be protected and governed correctly. It can no longer survive in nature without the help of humanity.
Wildlife will be the first to be affected or in need to adapt when global warming becomes a reality. The poisons we introduce into the ecologies are destroying the gift we have been given, life. Conservationism is extremely important, because it not only preserves wildlife for the world, but provides us with the privilege of sharing our home and our very way of life.
When we see species starting to face extinction, it must be a very bright red flag, which proclaims, "Hey we are on that list as well," in the sense of biodiversity. Conservationism is important as it is the future of species, including our own.
