“Why are animals in danger?”
Animals are all around us. But nowadays animals are in danger, because people collect animals as pets, and hunt them for food and for fun. Today we can speak about elephants, tigers, rhinos and bears.
A million years ago there were a lot of more species of animals than there are now. Of course, some species disappear naturally, but today they’re disappearing faster than before. Rhinoceros die because people want their horns. We put new buildings on empty land and do not think of animals. We make new roads, we take away trees. Many of these animals are in danger. Many of them are very rare or extinct. They're dying, because man had destroyed their homes. You know a lot of forests are damaged, so these creatures are in danger. Every ten minutes one kind of animals or plant or insect disappears. The wild animals have no space to move, no grass to eat, no water to drink.
“Endangered animals of Kazakhstan”
There are a vast and varied collection of wild animals in Kazakhstan. There are ...
In Red Book there are many animals. They're in danger. We must defend these animals, because they're very rare or extinct. We have in our land 8 reserves. They are: Aksu-Zhabagaly, Almaty, Markhakol, the West Altay, Khorgalzhyn, Nauryzym, Barsakelmes, Ustirt, Alakol.
Of course, our government tries hard to protect animals. We also have a special holiday International Animal Protection Day when the whole world tries to solve this problem.
Remember! 4 October – International Animal Protection Day.
