Defenders of Wildlife

more than the future

more than the future

The motivation for the general public when it comes to protecting wildlife, it seems, is keeping natures wonders around for future generations. As important as that is, I feel that the more important element is that we keep them around for their own sake. To me, preserving wildlife for our own benefit is nice, but beyond that, it shouldn't be about us. It should be about caring for the survival of animals in an unselfish way. Luckily, we do get to benefit from their presence and the delight they provide. The reason I write letters and donate money is to make sure that we don't run them out. We make their lives so difficult, and yet they posess strengths we can only imagine, and live in conditions in which we could never survive. Every time I see a bird, or a mammal, or any other element of nature, I am fortunate to witness that little part of their lives, if just for a moment. We are all fortunate.
