HOW TO BE ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS
I’m sure no sane person would want to contribute to the extinction of any species, so here are several tips on becoming a good guy:
SAY NO TO HUNTING
Foxes were introduced into Australia’s wild back then because of hunting.
There is no need to hunt nowadays. There are alternatives to food and sports that are safer for both humans and animals; there are also more ethical ways in which we can control animal populations. If there is no more need for hunting, then the most logical action we can do is to not support it.
SAY NO TO BREEDING
And, of course, say yes to adopting.
Cats breed fast: Feral cats spread widely and quickly that they have become a major threat in the survival of most smaller native wildlife. Now that we have the option to spay and neuter domestic animals, let’s not contribute to their overpopulation since there won’t always be enough people to take care of them eventually.
SAY YES TO SUSTAINABLE LIVING
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, livestock is the largest user of land resources, representing almost 80% of all agricultural land, including grazing land and cropland to produce feed, causing habitat loss due to deforestation.
Raising livestock for food is not sustainable. Even if everyone says they will only eat a little meat every day, that still makes up billions of people that multiply each year. The demand will continue, which means that we are going to take more land meant for wildlife. Now that you know eating animals is not sustainable, it is probably the right time to try a veggie burger or two!
