Joanie's Wildlife Homepage
Hi! It's Joanie. I love animals! That's why I made a homepage all about them. Please look around and read about the helpless animals in this world that is getting killed by the most dangerous animal: the man. Feel free to give me suggestions on improving this page and send a friend something with the sites at the bottom! And of course, sign my guestbook!
Everyday, thousands of animals are poached, slaughtered, hunted, trapped, poisoned, killed, and any other horrible activity done to them. If you think about it, for quite a while, the world would be a perfect place without us humans.
Take a moment to think about it...
Also, forests are being burned down for agriculture, homes, farms, or are being cut for paper, furniture, household products, and other things but that means losing animal habitat and some of the most valuable medicines, like the rosy periwinkle from rainforests used to cure childhood leukemia, a type of blood cancer. If we didn't save the rainforests, we would have never found a cure 20 years ago and there would be tragic deaths.
Some scientists say that by the year 2000, TWENTY more species of animals will disappear from the face of the earth, if we don't do anything, which will be a tragic loss. Imagine when you have children and you can only see your favourite animals in zoos instead of the wild. Then you wonder what it will be like to see your favourite animals die in the wild and to only see them again in the protection of zoos and pictures. Even some reserves and sanctuaries aren't safe.
I'm trying to get the word out on saving these poor creatures that are misunderstood by providing you with some information of different animals of the world to give you a glimpse of what is actually happening to the world around us. If everyone in this world can do just a little, like recycling constantly, car pooling, planting trees, donating money, whatever, the world would be just a bit better.
