The last lions? - Times LIVE
To read an article at the Time Magazine website entitled, "The last lions", please click on the link above this line. Can you imagine a world without Lions in it? Well this possibility is becoming more and more realistic because of the selfish actions of people who kill animals like lions so they can trade the parts of these wonderful animals! Fortunately, there are some wonderful people who have decided to try and stop these animals such as the Lion, from going extinct. To read an article about what I am talking about please click on the following link:
"Illegal wildlife trade totals billions of dollars a year globally, but conservationists say the problem is most acute in Southeast Asia. Despite international and local laws designed to crack down on the trade, live animals and animal parts -- often those of endangered or threatened species -- are sold in open-air markets throughout the region. Growing demand, porous borders and the lure of big money make it a lucrative business."
Once again we see that it is the Asian part of the World that is causing this problem,which again suggests the need for us to stop buying from these countries. If you stop buying and voice your outrage concerning the behavior of Asians relating to the selling of wildlife parts and animals, by writing the Governments of these countries,maybe they will realize what they will be losing if they continue with these practices!!
