Animals have been around long before we have. With that being said, many have them have also died way before we came around. Humans, in general have been wiping out animals left and right, not caring about the consequences. Food chains would be wiped out and future generations will never know what it is like to see a tiger or a polar bear in real life because they “never existed.” Do your part in keeping animals safe, it starts when you unplug something when your not using it or carpooling to work/school instead.
