Hunting, a way to save endangered species

Poaching

The world looks towards technology as it heads to the future, but what gets left behind on the way there? Now more than ever there are hundreds of endangered species, each struggling to survive. So in response to the decline of  animals, countries are establishing hunting bans in order to keep the animals alive. It seems logical to increase the endangered species, then you would need to stop the killing.

The problem escalated even worse, especially in Africa, their numbers are dwindling as a result of poachers. Studies were conducted in Kenya and Tanzania. The results showed that the hunting bans actually increased the amount of animals that were killed. So what is the solution?

The solution is hunting quotas. Hunting quotas  are a close monitored amount of animals of a certain species allowed to be killed by licensed hunters. Once a quote or certain amount of the animal species in that area is achieved, no more may be killed. These Quotas generate jobs, money, opportunities, and help educate the community.

Hunting quotas will save the endangered species and help to protect the environment.

Drug Sentences

holderArticle Summary:

This week, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Justice Department would no longer pursue harsh sentences for low-level and non-violent drug offenders. Such a decision comes on the realization that incarceration is “ineffective and unsustainable.” Some punishment will still be given to those who break the law in regards to drugs. However, the sentences that will be given to these small time offenders will match the crimes they commit, instead of being irrationally harsh.
