Overhunting is the practice or the act of killing wild animals as game or sport. Overgrazing is to allow animals to graze with no limitation, which results in damaging the vegetation cover. Overfishing is non-sustainable use of sea resources, because of the over capturing of fish. We humans have been killing animals for survival since we have been evolved. Long time ago there were no rights or laws for killing a certain animals because the human population was very modest. Killings animals since the Stone Age has been done because we needed the food, fur to survive and sustain life.
Nowadays we struggle to keep the animals population abroad, as many species are being extinct. This is a problem because of the global warming, and climate changing all around the world. Also how animals are being hunted down just for the joy or for food.
Overfishing has become a very serious problem over the past few years. Overfishing is when fish are harvested and taken out of their ecosystem faster than the can be reproduced. There have been many laws and regulations trying to prevent overfishing, there are national and regional fishing quotas designed to protect fish stocks, but it is still very difficult to prevent. The reasons overfishing is difficult to catch, is because fishing boats can just dump the excess fish back into the water. The past few years have done damage to the oceans predatory fish, severely depleting their populations due to overharvesting. The UN and other government agencies have been trying to provide us with solutions to help prevent overfishing.
In the twenty-first century agriculture is one of the largest industries in the world. As such, it has been having detrimental impacts on the environment such as land and water usage and the degradation of natural resources. With the global population increasing, societies must start to weigh the inherent consequences of the environment that farming has against the dire need for having more food. Worldwide, agriculture has been linked with negative effects on the environment. The most obvious and harmful examples are land clearing, soil erosion, and pollution of water and air. Other concerns relate to agriculture\’s massive consumption of fresh water and detrimental effects on biodiversity. These are all serious ecological issues that government agencies are trying to help fix.
Animal rights has been a relatively radical idea. Legal prohibitions against cruelty to animals have existed for many years and uphold the widespread view that people should not cause animals undue suffering and abuse. However, the animals covered by such laws are still considered to be objects. People argue that they do not have inherent rights on their own. Legally, they can be killed, eaten, and used for labor, entertainment, or other purposes under a wide variety of circumstances around the world. The most ardent animal rights advocates believe animals should have universally recognized rights and for the most part, be free of human domination.
Although, this liberation movement would eliminate animal agriculture completely. There would be no meat, eggs, milk, hide, fur, or other animal products. In addition, it would be impermissible for people to hold animals captive and use them for human purposes, no matter how beneficial those uses might be to human society. This extreme view of animal rights is held by only a small minority group of people. Animal rights exist within a much broader less extreme and growing belief system that animal welfare is a moral imperative that deserves far more attention. This has brought greater public scrutiny of all animal uses and demands for reforms in many cases.
An endangered species is a wild animal or plant species with a population that has dropped so low that the survival of the species is in peril and they might become extinct. The reasons for the extinction threat may be related to ecological factors, human-related factors, or a combination of both. Human development and disruption of natural habitats are major causes of species depletion. Around the world, societies work to varying degrees to conserve wild spaces, ecosystems, and the native animals and plants that inhabit them. Governments and international organizations compile lists of the species most in danger of disappearing and devote money and other resources to prevent this from happening. Their efforts have proven successful at bringing a few species back from the brink of extinction. However, many other species remain desperately imperiled. Saving them is a herculean task given an ever-expanding human population with its own demands for land, water, and food and a propensity to degrade the natural environment.
Whaling is the hunting and killing of whales for their meat and other body parts. For centuries, it was a thriving industry that severely depleted the populations of many whale species. As of 2019, Japan, Iceland, and Norway were the only countries that openly engaged in commercial whaling. An international convention had forbidden any commercial whaling since 1986 but includes loopholes that some of these countries have used to legally avoid the ban. The practice is extremely controversial and evokes strong protests based on concerns about animal welfare and endangerment of whale species. However, the nations that conduct commercial whaling defend it as ecologically sustainable and believe they are unfairly criticized on the world stage. A handful of indigenous people with long whaling traditions slaughter whales for their own consumption. This is allowed by national and international laws but does stoke some public criticism.”
