Animals in nature are not merely inanimate creatures, blocks of bones, blocks of flesh for us to exploit. They are wonderful products of nature, created after many millions of years of evolution.
Nature has inherent laws of existence and operation, to ensure ecosystems are complete systems. One cycle supports the other. The presence of one species helps or inhibits the other to ensure optimal balance. When a species is destroyed, there can be an imbalance, from small to large scale, from local to all ecosystems and eventually to the whole earth. When ecosystems are out of balance, people will naturally bear all the consequences.
At this point, we can partly see why it is necessary to take measures to conserve rare animal species. Each animal that disappears will be unique values that are lost forever, irrecoverably. This is followed by unpredictable ecological and environmental consequences. Changing attitudes and changing actions of each individual will contribute to maintaining those invaluable values for our future generations.
