Beastly treat­ment

Southasia - - EDITOR'S MAIL -

The ar­ti­cle on il­le­gal poach­ing in Bhutan and the threat it poses to the wildlife there, was an eye opener. The World Wide Fund and other or­ga­ni­za­tions should con­sider tak­ing steps to cre­ate aware­ness of en­dan­gered species. The tar­get au­di­ence of their campaign should be the lower class that needs to know the im­por­tance of the sta­bil­ity of the ecosys­tem.

Re­cently, poach­ers in Africa butchered the largest ele­phant in the world, which was the last of its kind. They not only took its tusks for ivory but also carved out most of its face. Some­one fa­mously said that the most dan­ger­ous an­i­mal in the world is man him­self. It is our duty to prove this state­ment wrong and pro­tect wildlife. The agen­cies re­spon­si­ble for the pro­tec­tion of wildlife should hire hon­est and re­spon­si­ble staff. More check­posts should be set up in jun­gles and wildlife re­serves to en­sure the pro­tec­tion of an­i­mals from poach­ers.
