Are You Eating an Endangered Species?
If offered rhino or tiger meat would you accept it? This is a valid question when considering that most people don’t think twice about consuming a piece of tuna. However, they would immediately decline a piece of African game meat, knowing it is from an endangered species. With the depleting amounts of blue fin tuna in our oceans, Greenpeace has created a new campaign relating the consumption of blue fin tuna to eating endangered species.
The possibility of complete extinction is inevitable if something isn’t done to conserve the population before it is too late. If we ignore the warning signs and allow the destruction to happen, undeniably another creature will follow the same devastating demise, thus creating an endless domino effect. No species right for life should be devalued due to our world’s ignorance or greed.
