P1: Why is the protection of animals important?

P2: Protection of animals preserves wildlife. If species become extinct, we may lose a potentially valuable product.

P3: What different factors threaten their existence?

P 4: Disease, pollution threatens their existence. Our planet is endangered today. Many lovely creatures are included in the list of extinct species. This happens because we damage their habitat.

P1: Do you think endangered species of animals should be bred up in captivity or live in the wild?
