Not too long ago, people were compared to parasites, because in some cases, we act just like them. Sometimes we use and abuse resources to the point where they disappear. The evidence of this statement is in the number of animals that won’t be around for much longer because of our unsustainable behavior. Our growing numbers are putting a strain on the natural world and our need for comfort and security has caused many animals to suffer the consequences. As a result, there will be numerous animals that will go extinct before your children grow up.
