It is a natural process for animal species to become extinct (e.g. dinosaurs, dodos, etc.). There is no reason why people should try to prevent this from happening. Do you agree or disagree?

Several people believe that the extinction of animals like dinosaurs and dodos is an organic process of nature and there is not much that people can do to evade this from happening. As far as I am concerned, I strongly disagree with this viewpoint since the extinction is caused by humans where they have their rising demands of animal products and their expansion into the natural habitats of the animal kingdom.

First and foremost, the species that are not existing presently are primarily due to the never-ending needs of the citizens which they tend to extract from the animals. Humans have crossed almost every line to take undue advantage of the animals by using their skin for manufacturing leather products like expensive bags, belts, and shoes. Additionally, in the 21st century, it has become a style statement in society to preserve the bones of the carnivores in the houses in order to look rich and luxurious. Moreover, meat products coming from goats, cows, and pigs have increased considerably amongst individuals since they are a rich source of protein in their diet. For example, it was published in the leading newspaper, The Times Of India, in its 2020 edition that the Indian Government had to impose a ban on the smuggling of elephant tusks since there was a serious threat to the population of elephants. Hence, humans are the sole culprits for the eradication of animals from nature.

Another reason for my disagreement is that the citizens play a key role in making the animals extinct by increasing their territory in their natural habitat. Forests are being rapidly cleared to create new townships that eventually wipe of the natural homes for a lot of species. Due to this deforestation, the world experiences landslides and soil erosion that is even worse for the animals that are on the verge of extinction. Furthermore, by destroying the ecosystem, the food chain is disrupted making the animals starve and even the plants dry. For instance, the Aravali area near the Southern part of New Delhi which was home to several species of bears & deers has now been converted into corporate townships and large shopping malls by the leading real estate companies, and there is not a single animal visible today. Thus, the population is responsible for the extinction of the fauna by encroaching into their homeland and constructing their own buildings.

To recapitulate, though it is nature that decides the fate of the living beings, I wholeheartedly believe that humans are the prime factors responsible for the accelerated extinction of the animal kingdom, as they hunt them for their own desires along with using their homes for commercial purposes.
