An animal need not necessarily be a tiger or a panda or a lion tailed macaque to be termed as the one that is facing threat of extinction or to be given extra care and protection by the WWF in order to conserve it. For the fact, every animal or living being needs to be conserved to make sure that the ecosystem is not affected and does not bring an ecological imbalance. More than the scientific reasons, we just need to keep reminding ourselves that they too are made of flesh and blood and also breathe, move and emote like us. We humans, even after encroaching into someone else territory do not have the basic concerns or care for them and keep disturbing, irritating, provoking and even injuring the animals. It is time we acted sensibly by restricting our encroaching instincts and left the animal world to live their life peacefully in their domain.
