Endangered species is
a species which has been categorized as very likely to become extinct. Gordon
Kricke who is the ambassador of Germany has stated about the protection of the
endangered species in his article. His opinion was agreeable because the
detailed that he has shown was sufficient. I agree on his stand that species
are dying out an alarming rate and their natural habitat is under increasing
pressure. Because nowadays there are many reason why there are extinction of
animals and other species.

Gordon Kricke article
talks about the species which is endangered. He discuss first the event in
Manila which is the ASEAN. That event was a successful event with concrete
promising results and the Philippine receive praise both as an excellent host.
Until he open the topic about endangered species. He says that decision made on
that day of migratory animals, including shark, lions and vultures. His article
was all about the reasons and the thing we need to do just to protect those
endangered species and how relevant it is.

 The Philippine government and its
instrumentalities, with help coming from international organizations, have been
exerting serious efforts to preserve the country and prevent the extinction of
a number of endangered species. “At the forefront of these efforts is the
Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) which oversees several conservation
programs in cooperation with local and international organizations”. From that
information, Gordon Kricke opinion was agreeable because according to him there
are 25 government participant for the protection of endangered species. There
are government who wants to help. Gordon also said that Philippines is one who
recognized as migratory species champions for the long term support to
initiatives that benefit migratory species conservation. The Philippine
government undertaken the following initiatives: Sagip Wildlife Program
developed through concerted efforts of DENR other government agencies and
non-government sectors. Based on my researched in Google, in terms of
registration there is Republic Act 9147 approved on July 30, 2001 also known as
“Wildlife Resources conservation and protection Act” which declares that
it is a general policy of the state to conserve the country and wildlife
resources and their habitats for sustainability. But the real question is how
we can protect them. For example, pollution is a huge threat to every single
animal or plant. Pollution is the reason for global warming which causes the
destruction of the animals’ habitat. Pollution is not the only reason for the
extinction now a days, we, the people are one of reason why there is extinction
of species so we are also the one who can solution it. All problems has a
solution. Animals, plants and other species are very important.

According to Benny G.
Enriguez there are many ways to do the right thing and protect them. Learn about endangered species in your area.
The first step to protecting endangered species is learning about how
interesting and important they are. Our natural world provides us with many
indispensable services including clean air and water, food and medicinal sources,
commercial, aesthetic and recreational benefits. Second is, visit a national wildlife refuge, park and
other open space. These protected lands provide habitat to many native
wildlife, bird, fish and plants. Scientist tell 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 reaction creates millions of jobs and support
local business. Make your home wildlife
friendly. Secure garbage in shelters or cans with locking lids, feed pets
indoors and lock pet doors at night to avoid attracting wild animals into your
home. Reduce your use of water in your home and garden so that animals that live
in or near water can have a better chance of survival. Disinfect birds’ baths
often to avoid disease transmission. Place decals on windows. You can help
reduce the number of collisions. Millions of birds die every year because of
collisions with widows. You can help reduce the number of collisions simply by
placing decals on the windows in your home and office. Native plants provide food and shelter for native wildlife.
Attracting native insects like bees and butterflies can help pollinate your
plants the spread of non-native has greatly impacted native populations around
the world. Invasive species compete with native species for resources and
habitat. They can even prey on native species directly, forcing native species
towards extinction. Herbicides and
pesticides may keep yards looking nice but they are in fact hazardous
pollutants that affect wildlife at many levels. Many herbicides and
pesticides take a long time to degrade and build up in the soils or throughout
the food chain. Predators such as hawks, owls and coyotes can be harmed if they
eat poisoned animals. Some groups of animals such as amphibians are
particularly vulnerable to these chemical pollutants and suffer greatly as a
result of the high levels of herbicides and pesticides in their habitat. Slow down when driving. Many animals
live in developed areas and this means they must navigate a landscape full of
human hazards. One of the biggest obstacles to wildlife living in developed
areas or roads. Roads divide habitat and present a constant hazard to any
animal attempting to cross from one side to the other. So when you’re out
about, slow down and keep an eye out from wildlife.

Now a day’s many
organization had been presented just to protect all the endangered species.
There are different ways to protect them. Just like what Gordon Kricke said
that the increase efforts of everyone will be a big help to make a turnaround
and to protect biodiversity and the environment. It is not too late for us to
cooperate and be a big help to protect endangered species. Since we are the
ones who destroy them, so we must learn how to save them. Always remember that
every step in our life there’s also a big role or obligation that we need to do
in terms of progression here in the Philippines. Let us be united as one with
love and concerned to our environment.
