kangaroo Advice/Improvements: your favourite animal, and why? Where you are from: Florida How you got here: I got a search engine, looked up baboons and read through Baboons!! and then returned to your home page. Comments: Joanie, I say you did a great job on yor homepage! It`s obvious that you like animals. When did you begin studying them??? I love animals, too. I have a ferret, my younger sister has a ferret, and basicly, I`m just trying to learn about ferrets, and along the way, I like other animals, too! Are their any animals you DON`T like?? I like all animals exept spiders and snakes. Why? I think they`re just creepy.

Everyday, thousands of animals are poached, slaughtered, hunted, trapped, poisoned, killed, and any other horrible activity done to them. If you think about it, for quite a while, the world would be a perfect place without us humans. Take a moment to think about it… Also, forests are being burned down for agriculture, homes, farms, or are being cut for paper, furniture, household products, and other things but that means losing animal habitat and some of the most valuable medicines, like the rosy periwinkle from rainforests used to cure childhood leukemia, a type of blood cancer. If we didn’t save the rainforests, we would have never found a cure 20 years ago and there would be tragic deaths.

A lot of pets are abandoned on streets and they have to fend for themselves. They have to face cars, trains, diseases, people, and other dangers and they usually die. Some people dump them in shelters which are overcrowded and are filled with disease. The people in the shelters don’t have enough money for medicine and have to rely on donations from people since they don’t get any support from the government. Some scientists say that by the year 2000, TWENTY more species of animals will disappear from the face of the earth, if we don’t do anything, which will be a tragic loss. Imagine when you have children and you can only see your favourite animals in zoos instead of the wild. Then you wonder what it will be like to see your favourite animals die in the wild and to only see them again in the protection of zoos and pictures. Even some reserves and sanctuaries aren’t safe. I’m trying to get the word out on saving these poor creatures that are misunderstood by providing you with some information of different animals of the world to give you a glimpse of what is actually happening to the world around us. If everyone in this world can do just a little, like recycling constantly, car pooling, planting trees, donating money, whatever, the world would be just a bit better.
