Title: Endangered species
Post by: knowledgepower21 on 30/01/2021 23:06:05
Scientists tell us the best way to protect endangered species is to protect the places where they live. Get involved by volunteering at your local nature center or wildlife refuge. Go wildlife or bird watching in nearby parks. Wildlife related recreation creates millions of jobs and supports local businesses.

I regret the extinction of Trilobites and Pterodactyls. 

But Life moves on.  That's its beauty. As old species become extinct, fascinating new species evolve.

Otherwise, we wouldn't even be here to discuss it.
