Conservation of wildlife

Write a speech on the measures that should be taken to preserve wildlife
 
Good morning, teachers and friends. Never has a wildlife faced such great threats of extinction as in the last few decades. We bulldoze forests to make way for concrete jungles, depriving many species of the flora and fauna native to their habitats. We dump all types of waste into our rivers and seas, doing irreparable damage to freshwater and marine species. We hunt for sport and use animal parts to cater to our exotic tastes. All our actions are resulting in the dwindling of wildlife. We are losing plant and animal species at an accelerated rate.

Ladies and gentlemen, what can we do to stop this massacre ? Firstly, wildlife trade should be banned. The authorities should strictly prohibit the sale of animals and animal parts whether it is for medicinal or for other purposes. Forests are habitats for numerous species of flora and fauna. Dwindling forests means dwindling wildlife. Therefore, forests should be preserved. Promulgating laws alone will not be an effective deterrent. Offenders should be punished. The authorities should invoke the full weight of the law to make offenders cease their illegal trade.

For wild life species that face the threat of extinction, the authorities should make a concerted effort to conserve them. The creation of forest reserves and animal sanctuaries will prevent animal and plant species from being wiped out. The success of the Sepilok Orangutan rehabilitation Center is Sabah is a clear example of how effective such conservation programs are. Similarly, the establishment of marine parks can protect both marine life and their habitats from being destroyed.

Scientific research can single out threats to flora and fauna species and also discover ways of tackling these threats effectively. Monetary incentives such as grants from the government will encourage scientific research. the mass media and television programs like National Geographic can instil awareness in the public on the need to preserve biodiversity. Coverage of wildlife issues should be increased.

The public, too, should play its part. As green consumers, we can refuse to buy products that make sue of animal parts.

If the authorities, the private sector and the public play their part, we can put a stop to practices that endanger wildlife.
