Why Wildlife Conservation is Important Today
00:15
Human activities like agriculture expansion, logging, and poaching are usually the biggest causes of flora and fauna extinction, and biodiversity loss. Over the last four decades, human activities have greatly pushed some animal species to near extinction with an estimated loss of about 10,000 species per year accounting for the loss of half of the world’s wildlife population.

5 Exceptional Reasons Why Wildlife Conservation is Important Today
00:30
1. Promotes pollination and continuity of native plant species Small animals particularly bees, insects, butterflies, and birds play an important role in food production. Conservation of these animals, therefore, aid in pollination. Since they depend on nectar from flowers, they arevital in crop production, inter-cropping, and promoting the continuity of native plant species. By moving from one flower to another in search of nectar, bees carry pollen by sustaining the process of crop growth.

2. Medicinal value
00:43
Although plants are the major sources of medications, some animals are also vital in the production of medications. For example, the venom from cobra is an important ingredient in making the medications for leprosy while lobsters can be used as antifungals.

2.Aesthetic benefits
00:49
Watching animals in their natural habitat is not only fun but also relaxing. People always go for holidays in areas under conservation such as zoos, game parks, lakes, oceans, forests, and mountains for activities such as camping, fishing, boat riding, and hiking just to mention a few. It has been reported that people who spend most of their time outdoors whetherhunting, watching wild animals, or taking a walk or aride in natural habitats are less likely to suffer from stress and stress-related complications. Conserving wildlife means that people can continue enjoying nature at its best!!

4. Preserves heritage and culture
00:57
Conserving wildlife means conserving heritage and traditional culture. Some places are known for their flora and fauna in relation to the native practices and ways of livelihood, which means that failing to conserve the environment, will lead to loss of their land and native heritage.

5. Promotes tourism attraction The reason why most people choose to visit a certain countryover others is basically due to the country’s fauna and flora, as well as natural habitats such as forests, mountains, and water bodies.
