Firstly, if we allow any species to disappear, this is actually not a disaster. Some people may argue that the ecosystems will be seriously affected if birds and wild animals are on the verge of extinction, but this is an exaggeration. Fossil evidence suggests that the mass disappearance of the dinosaurs did not cause any harm to other species on the Earth, but merely triggered the emergence of others such as mammals. Therefore, we should not devote too much attention to the protection of wildlife.

Secondly, public money is limited. So we should allocate our national budget to more urgent issues rather than expending too much in the conservation of wild animals and birds. For example, more resources should be diverted to medical research to find out remedies for fatal diseases such as HIV and cancer, which may help to save thousands of lives in society.

Finally, the government can simply protect wildlife by continuing campaigns to raise public awareness of the protection of wildlife habitats or imposing stricter punishments on activities that may harm wild animals. Any individual who hunts wildlife for food or for pleasure should be given a heavy fine, and this may discourage them from threatening the life of wild animals.

In conclusion, while I do not refute the argument for the conservation of wildlife, I believe that it should attract less attention and fewer resources from the public.

Band 8.0 Sample Answer 2:

For centuries, deforestation, farming, urbanisation and other human activities have wreaked havoc with wild animal species and sent them to the verge of extinction. Regarding wildlife protection, awareness has been raised and attempts have been made. However, some hold the idea that the protection of endangered species has been given inordinate amount of attention and resources.  Personally, I do not see eye to eye with this point of view.

In the first place, wildlife protection has never taken centre stage on the media. Compared with celebrities, for example, the amount of coverage of wild animals is infinitesimal. Clearly, the reason is profits. In other words, programs featuring wild animals do not generate interest of the public and accordingly returns for the producers. The absence of educational programs concerning the lives of wild animals has blinded people to the reality that wild animals are dying and the ecological system are being disrupted severely.

In addition, governments around the world do not prioritise wildlife conservation in their agenda’s. As a matter of fact, laws to save wild animals have been introduced, but they are loosely enforced. Because of this, every man can freely exploit land, chop down forests, and divert the water sources, all of which combine to destroy the natural habitats of threatened animals.

In every corners of the world, with or without intention, human are still causing changes in climatic and geopgraphical conditions, which accelerates of animal extinction. In light of this fact, I feel that not enough attention and resources are being given in the conservation of wild flora and fauna and stronger actions need to be taken to save them.

Useful expressions:

To send something to the verge of extinction: make them become extinct.

To be given inordinate amount of attention: to receive not enough attention.

See eye to eye with: agree with.

Coverage (n.) the reporting (in media)

To be infinitesimal: insignificant.

To disrupt the ecological system: to make it lose balance.

Laws are loosely enforced: Laws are disregarded.

To chop down forest: cut down a lot of trees.

Divert (v.) change its direction

In light of this fact: all things considered

The flora and fauna: every animals and plants.

Bonus question: More and more wild animals are on the verge of extinction and others are on the endangered list. What are the reasons for this? What can be done to solve this problem?
